“We are going to be watching it through the night … and if it requires salting we will be out there salting,” said a spokesperson for the Wayne County Road Commission.
In Wayne County, the Department of Public Services has issued a full-staff call-in, meaning all 95 salt trucks are out on the roads.
The snow plows and salt trucks are out clearing the roads in metro Detroit after snow Saturday night and Sunday morning.
MSP is asking drivers to use extreme caution … and to be aware that surfaces that appear to have been cleared are icing up now that temperatures have fallen.
While the winter storm means a weekend of work for many, others are taking advantage of the white stuff to have some fun.
Freezing rain, sleet, snow — it’s coming down across metro Detroit and that means a long night for salt truck drivers.
Among the biggest accidents we’re looking at are along the northbound Southfield Freeway before Oakwood … where one lane is open but things are still a big mess.
When the heavy snow hits this winter, there will be more plows on the streets of Oakland County.
The Road Commission for Oakland County may be ahead of the salt game this winter.
The roads are getting better following Sunday’s snowstorm, but it all depends on where you are.
