City Prepping For The Big Freeze Overnight

It's only rain and freezing conditions but it could make for some very dangerous driving in the City.

That is why city crews are clearing catch basins to allow for the inevitable flooding that comes with warm temps and rain.

Kevin Rice of Transportation and Environment Services tells CHSJ News they will also be out in force salting and sanding once the temperature drops.

He says their crews have been working around the clock since December 15th and they consider this another storm event because it has a major impact on their operations.

Rice says it tough to remove that layer of anchor ice on some roads because it's hard on the equipment and the weather doesn't stay warm long enough for salt to do the trick.
