102 City of Milwaukee salt trucks on standby Tuesday

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A winter weather ADVISORY goes into effect at 9 a.m. and lasts until midnight for Milwaukee, Waukesha, Jefferson, Racine, Kenosha and Walworth county.

The Department Public Works says they are prepared -- with 102 salt trucks on standby Tuesday morning, January 14th.

Southeast Wisconsin has seen more snow than usual by this time in the season. But there is not much concern at the City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works.

Sandy Rusch Walton of the DPW says the city has gone through about half of its road salt supply so far this winter. The city’s vendor is apparently confident it will be able to keep the city supplied with rock salt through the winter months.

Since December 1, 2013, Milwaukee has received 26.7 inches of snow as measured at Mitchell International Airport. Our normal snowfall by this time of the season is about 16 inches.
