Put Your Winter Driving Cap On One More Time

DETROIT (WWJ) – The Wayne County Road Commission is ready for another blast of winter overnight. Spokesperson Cindy Dingell says they have 100 plow drivers on standby to take care of any snow.

“It looks like right now that … it will just be sticking to the grass, but we are still advising folks to put your winter driving caps on just one more time and pay attention to those bridges and overpasses, and in the higher elevations just in case they do ice up.”

Dingell says the Commission does have plenty of salt left if needed.

She advises drivers to pay special attention to bridge decks and overpasses, which can ice up when the rest of the road is just wet.

“We are going to be watching it through the night … and if it requires salting we will be out there salting,” she said.

Dingell says they have a 33,000 ton stockpile of salt and plenty of drivers on standby.
