No Snow Emergency, but a Slow and Slippery Commute - WKOW 27: Madison, WI Breaking News, Weather and Sports

No snow emergency for Madison, but expect slow and slippery commute


MADISON (WKOW) -- More light snow Tuesday morning may make for a slippery commute.

The City of Madison Streets Department has had trucks out salting since about 4 a.m., but it doesn't plan to plow until after the snow ends.

The City will begin plowing all residential streets beginning at 7:00 a.m. Trucks will also do a "general" plowing because of the smaller amounts of snow we've gotten over the last four days. There will be 175 plows out on the streets by 7:00 a.m. It'll likely take 10 to 12 hours to plow the entire city. 

A Representative from the Madison Streets Division says that crews are already out salting, in order to open them up for the morning commute. Officials say the snow could still cause some slippery spots, so drive carefully and slowly. Also, brake early and give yourself enough time to stop.
