Workers driving 30 to 34 trucks will
begin salting city snow routes once ice or snow starts to accumulate
on roadways or ground temperatures dip below freezing.
A snow route map is listed on the
city’s website at http://www.okc.gov/prepare/winter.html.
Yager, city road crews will work 12-hour shifts until the winter
weather improves. OKC’s street department has about 7,100 tons of
salt in stock. According to Yager, salt truck drivers will cover
about 200 miles in a 12-hour shift.
Crews were preparing for the
anticipated ice and snow by pretreating roads and bridges with a
brine solution earlier Thursday.
