MADISON (WKOW) -- With snowfall measured from 5" to 8.9" in the immediate Madison area, residents were busy digging out from Tuesday's storm.
City plow crews were out in full force all day on main streets, with a plan to begin plowing side streets overnight.
The constant snowfall limited what crews could do.
"We haven't put down as much salt as we might have liked because we're continuing to plow it to the side of the road before it has much chance to do its work," said streets division spokesman George Dreckman.
Already this winter, the city has used more than 12,000 tons of salt, 9,500 tons of sand, and 137,000 gallons of salt brine.
For this storm, the city estimates using 700 to 1,000 tons of salt on streets.
