INDY DPW TREATING ROADWAYS AHEAD OF MORNING COMMUTE
INDIANAPOLIS—With yesterday’s snowfall leaving 5 inches of snow on Indianapolis roadways, the Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) will continue to have a crew of 80 salt trucks treating roads throughout the day Sunday into the Monday morning commute as temperatures drop below freezing.
Crews will be clearing downtown drains, parking lanes and ADA ramps of snow. DPW crews have used over 3,800 tons of salt and have over 15,000 tons of salt in the city’s salt barns.
The Indy Snow Force Viewer is activated and shows real-time movements of DPW trucks. The Indy Snow Force Viewer displays which streets have been treated with salt or plowed of snow.
DPW would like to remind residents to drive with care when on the roads with plow and salt trucks. Keep three car lengths between your vehicle and the snow plow to allow a safe stopping distance for plow drivers and yourself.
