DOH Pre-Treating Roads in Case of Snow & Ice

There's been some warning of icy and snowy weather that could be heading our way and the Division of Highways has been heeding those warnings and preparing our roads in case anything gets bad.

The storm that hit last Friday came quick and hit right around rush hour. That means, even some of the trucks that were trying get out to treat the roads were getting stuck in traffic themselves.
 
In preparation for this round of snow, the DOH ordered extra road supplies to make sure there's enough. On Wednesday, they were pre-treating the roads.
 
"We are pre-treating. We do a lot of pre-treating. A lot of times we'll get complaints about 'What? Are you putting stuff down? It's not snowing yet.' What we're actually doing is hoping to get that down before it gets icy because when it gets sub zero, no matter what kind of mixture you have, it won't cut the ice if you let it get ahead of you," said District Manager Greg Phillips.

Regional managers will keep checking the forecast so they know when and where they need to send crews.
