Crews will also apply sand to hills, curves, and intersections that aren’t on salt routes. However, because of the low temperatures, the city’s salt treatment may be ineffective.

Streets Division officials said drivers should expect roads to be snowy and slippery. Drivers should give themselves extra time when traveling during and after the Packers game.
