Weather event!

City of Durham sez:
To further prepare for tomorrow’s forecast, City employees will begin today distributing a salt-brine solution on high-traffic bridges and overpasses throughout the city limits as well as in the downtown area. Salt-brine solution is a salt and water mix that is sprayed onto the roadway surfaces before snow and ice begins to fall, helping to prevent accumulation from bonding to the road surface.



“We are pre-treating certain high-traffic roads throughout the city,” said Michael Balzarano, superintendent of the Street Maintenance Division of the City’s Department of Public Works. “We hope that the combination of the salt-brine solution and salt-and-sand trucks we have ready to roll will keep our roadways passable.”



The City’s plan of action for clearing or reducing hazards on city streets is prioritized in the following order:

· Bridges and overpasses throughout the city.

· Major arterial streets within the city.

· Streets to essential health facilities, police and fire stations and critical community facilities.

· Routes to two City fuel sites.

· Streets within the central business district.

· Clear access to Durham Public Schools.

· All residential areas with priority initially to passage of emergency vehicles and then to all traffic.

Also, stop at the grocery store to pick up the last of the bread and milk.
