How drivers can prepare for incoming snow

“You have to adjust for each storm,” said Highways and Bridges Foreman, Robert Gentile. “If it’s gonna rain, freezing rain, you’re definitely leaning more towards salt. If it’s gonna be a snow storm, we’ll stop salting at a certain point and go into a plowing operation.”Gentile said the two to three days following severe weather can be the busiest for the DPW.
