(January 25, 2009) - Eighteen salt crews will report to work at midnight tonight in preparation for sleet and rain predicted to occur overnight and in the morning hours.
Crews will focus their de-icing efforts along the City’s emergency snow routes, which can be viewed at www.okc.gov. Residents without access to the Internet can call Oklahoma City’s Action Center at 297-2535 and request a map.
Bridges and overpasses along the snow route will be the first to be treated.
Crews are prepared to work 12-hour shifts, 24 hours per day if needed.
Drivers can help crews by keeping a safe distance – about 500 feet – away from salt trucks.
