Milwaukee DPW prepared for what snow may fall in city

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Department of Public Works announced that it has plans to address the snowfall coming to southeast Wisconsin.

Officials issued a news release on Friday, December 8th indicating DPW crews have applied salt brine to city bridges, overpasses and most main streets. Drivers will recognize the brine on the road -- they show as chalky, white lines.

Once the snow began to fly, 103 salt trucks were deployed by the city. Those trucks addressed the main streets first -- and then moved to side streets. Officials do not anticipate mounting plow blades to trucks.

It's important to note that no DPW Operation has been called for Friday evening, so winter overnight parking rules remain the same.
