With the potential for snow in the forecast, the Lincoln Public Works and Utilities Department will pre-treat bridges and overpasses with liquid magnesium chloride to prevent the formation of ice patches.
Street Superintendent Andrew Edwards said current temperatures prevent crews from any pre-treatment Friday, but they plan to begin the operation about 4 a.m. Saturday. The City also has trucks and operators on stand-by for material spreading operations if intersections become slick.
The Public Works and Utilities Department urges drivers to use caution and good judgment when driving conditions become hazardous.
