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.
