Other traffic information: CITY OF CINCINNATI GEARED UP FOR 2012-2013 WINTER SEASON-- The 2012-2013 Winter Operations Program will focus on using a systematic approach for treating streets.
Public Services crews have been busy inspecting and calibrating equipment, reviewing snow routes, and receiving weather forecasting data in preparation for being able to make expedient operational adjustments when monitoring approaching winter conditions. The City’s Winter Operations team has been working hard all summer to gear up for this winter.
Jarrod Bolden says that the operational plans used by the City are based on strategically routing snow equipment. This equipment is deployed to various areas of the City after reviewing weather predictions provided by local television networks and a variety of local and national weather forecasting services. The combination of equipment, and the compounds used for treatment, work in tandem for the swift and efficient removal of ice and snow.
“We have a diverse fleet to include loaders, brine trucks and even pickup trucks for smaller streets. Having different types of equipment enhances our maneuverability during a snow event.
As for the treatment process, we use environmentally friendly products; brine, beet juice, salt and other compounds to effectively rid our thoroughfares of debilitating ice and snow. Keeping our citizens mobile is our top priority.”
