Snow Plows Prepared for Worst

By Andrew Lofholm, alofholm@k2tv.com


With a snow storm looming, the public service department says they are prepared for whatever mother nature throws at them. 


At 4 am tomorrow the Casper's 17 snow plows will begin clearing  about around 500 street miles in their jurisdiction. From there, a new shift will depart at 12-noon and again at 8pm with the goal to keep the streets as safe as possible.  In addition to the snow plows, they will spread some "ice slicer"  as needed to limit sliding on the frozen roads.  If the snow storm reaches a serious public safety threat, they will activate emergency snow routes.


You should have been contacted if you do live on an emergency snow route but if you are unsure, you can log onto casperwy.gov and see if your street is listed.  Your car may be towed or ticketed for parking on an emergency snow route.  Here's the full story.
