The Indianapolis Department of Public Works (DPW) has 80 salt trucks out pre-treating roadways ahead of the snow and frigid temperatures. Crews will remain on city roadways through the morning commute on Tuesday.
With the forecasted snowfall, freezing temperatures and wind gusts, crews will be addressing bridge decks, overpasses and major thoroughfares. DPW crews will also be treating ADA ramps downtown to prevent hazardous conditions. Forestry crews will be on standby to address any fallen debris in the public-right-of-way.
Ahead of the frigid temperatures expected this week, 20 DPW street crews will be out patching roadways across the city today. DPW would like to remind residents to drive with care as crews are out repairing city streets.
The Indy Snow Force Viewer will activate at 3 p.m. on Monday when drivers are on the roadways to show real-time movements of DPW trucks. The Indy Snow Force Viewer displays which streets have been treated with salt or plowed of snow. Give plow trucks plenty of room and look out for flashing amber lights to identify trucks out on the road.
