Main streets, or most streets with stripes, are the priority for Public Works and our largest plows. These are the streets that carry most of the city’s traffic as well as emergency vehicles and public transportation.
Public Works may use anti-icer and de-icer to improve the condition of the roads, both when snow starts to fall, and after snow has accumulated on the pavement. De-icing may be accomplished with the use of “Ice Slicer,” a dry, naturally mined mix of chlorides or with liquid magnesium chloride (often referred to simply as "Mag Chloride").
