Madison brings in more salt ahead of snowfall


MADISON (WKOW) -- The city of Madison is ready for the Christmas Eve snowfall.

The Streets Department just brought in 60 new loads of salt.

Officials say they'll be watching the radar and be ready to put crews on the streets at any moment.

"We will put out our 30 salt routes at approximately the beginning of the storm. And we will go through the evening with those salt routes. If we do get in excess of three inches or more, we will plow it," says streets operation manager Stephen Schultz.

He says it will likely be warm enough that salt will be effective on the roads, but if it gets cold enough, crews will switch over to a salt and sand mix until temperatures rise.
