Crews Work To Treat Roads In Time For Monday Commute

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The snow caused a mess on roads Sunday morning.

Road crews were out early and they’ll be busy through the night.

The day began with snow, inches in some areas. But it was enough for kids to enjoy an early afternoon of fun outdoors.

There weren’t any school cancellations to worry about – although there were some church services cancelled.

But for crews clearing away the snow, it was the perfect storm.

A non-work day meant far less traffic and early snow that turned into rain meant a little help in getting the roads cleared.

“Even though some of the streets are wet right now, you could come across an icing condition, especially later on when the temperatures drop,” said Guy Costa with Pittsburgh Public Works.

“We’re going to bring the night crew in early, around 6 and work ‘til 6 in the morning and hand it off to daylight and they’ll handle any snow we’re going to get overnight,” said Mike Gable with Public Works.

Officials say we’re in good shape.

They have between 8,000 and 10,000 tons of salt ready to go — it will just depend on how much rain we get and if it will wash away the salt.
