Madison will plow all residential streets Tuesday

There will not be a snow emergency declared in Madison Tuesday, but the city is planning to plow all city streets by the end of the day.

Madison Streets Superintendent Chris Kelley said approximately 170 pieces of equipment will begin plowing all city streets starting at 7 a.m. Kelley said he expects plowing the entire city will take 10 to 12 hours to complete.

Although there is no declared snow emergency, Kelley would like residents to abide by alternate side parking rules to help with snow plow operations. “Remember that fewer obstacles along the curb, such as parked cars or refuse and recycling carts, means a more complete and faster plowing operation,” said Kelley in a statement.

Street crews maintained salt routes throughout the night, and Kelley said the main streets are in good winter driving condition. However, Kelley said some wet, slippery spots persist, especially in intersections. He recommends planning for extra travel time and allowing extra braking distance Tuesday.
