UPDATE: Columbus Snow Warriors Report For Duty


UPDATED: Thursday December 27, 2012 4:49 PM

Columbus road crews have been treating roads since early Wednesday morning.

Crews said on Wednesday evening that they planned to begin plowing residential streets on Thursday. The city planned to have 90 trucks in operation on Thursday.

They planned to have all residential streets plowed by late Friday.

According to Columbus officials, crews are responsible for more than 6,300 lane miles in central Ohio.

Officials said that the Columbus Snow Warriors only plow residential streets after snowfalls of 4 inches or more and only after freeways, arterial and collector streets have been plowed and treated.

The Ohio Department of Transportation handles Interstates 70, 71, 670 and 270, not the City of Columbus.

Officials said that the city currently has 26,682 tons of salt on hand for the season. In addition to salt, the city also uses brine and ICEBITE, a beet juice combination with brine or calcium chloride.
