UPDATE 8:16 PM
With weather forecasts expecting a wintry mix of rain and light snow Monday afternoon (November 14) moving through Tuesday morning (November 15), the City of Salina will be pre-treating elevated surfaces with salt and a Magnesium Chloride brine (MgCl2).
The Streets work group plans to have additional trucks ready on standby for emergency response as needed throughout the evening and the early morning. Staff will continue to monitor weather reports and make adjustments to the plan as needed throughout the day and evening.
The public is asked to allow ample space when approaching salt trucks from behind, as the equipment will be distributing salt to the roadway. Driving too closely to equipment could also present additional challenges and safety concerns for operators and other motorists.
For additional information on the storm or snow removal operations, please visit the City’s website at http://www.salina-ks.gov/, the City’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/salina.ks.gov/ or call the General Services office at (785) 309-5750.
