Snow and Ice

IMG_1099.PNG

Did you know that
 
When snow or ice fall, highway maintenance  crews work 12-hour shifts to clear snow and ice from state highways. 
 
District 3 has over 70 snow plows working to clear the roadways and uses approximately 6,000 tons of salt per year! 
 
The Department of Highways also uses a pro-active approach to winter storms through a process of applying anti-icing materials prior to an imminent storm!

  

 Check Road Conditions!

Priority Routes Definitions:
Priority A: Interstates, parkways and major arteries, with the highest traffic volume. While all roads are treated during a winter storm, these receive top priority with a goal of a one-hour turnaround time on interstates and two-hour turnaround on other A routes.
 
Priority B: Highways that are not as heavily traveled as ‘A' routes, are treated next. All Priority B routes
should be completely treated during a routine winter storm with a goal of a four-hour turnaround.
 
Priority C: Mainly rural and other low-volume routes are third on the list. The cabinet's goal is to treat Priority C routes within 16 hours of the beginning of a routine snow event. However, because to protect the very expensive equipment, safety concerns for our crews and the lack of overall effectiveness, C routes might not be treated during overnight hours.
