The mild weather is creating wet and icy roadways as melted snow turns to ice overnight. Roadway crews are sanding and salting high-traffic streets, bridges and overpasses on a regular basis to provide traction and reduce icing. Sanding and salting is also occurring at intersections, curved roads and icy sections on all residential streets, as required. This evening 16 sanders will be in operation.

Daytime operations include monitoring and sanding sidewalks adjacent to City-owned property.
