After plowing is completed, roads are given a final treatment of deicing chemical. In the days following a storm, scraping and treating of roads continues depending upon weather forecasts. If more snow is expected again that night, flat or minor streets may not be treated right away.
If colder weather is in the forecast, streets are scraped of snow and slush to prevent icing of the surface when the temperature drops. Also, immediately following a storm, our crews will again widen the road edge so a to facilitate proper drainage as melting occurs with rising temperatures. See more about Drainage projects.
As time allows, snow is removed from intersections and some areas of the center of Town to improve parking and drivers' visibility.
