City of Cleveland preparing for first significant snowfall of this season

CLEVELAND - Snow is in the forecast and Cleveland is ready for whatever Mother Nature throws our way.

The Division of Streets has plans in place for this season's snowfall. Its using environmentally friendly materials, like salt brine, to treat the streets and pavements. 

As always, the goal is to have all streets serviced within 24-36 hours from when snow stops falling, depending on the actual amount of snow fall. Work will be ongoing until main thoroughfares are clear and residential streets are serviced.

Cleveland officials said all city salt domes are full, and trucks are ready to be deployed as soon as the white stuff hits the ground. The city has 48 trucks, 10 road graders and 14 pick-up trucks and small dump trucks. They said there are 24 full-time and 83 seasonal drivers available who will be on-duty whenever the need arises.

There will also be auxiliary crews ready for heavy amounts of snow.
