WEATHER: Street crews at the ready 

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 www.okc.gov/prepare/winter.html.

According to
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.
