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.

Information on the Citys snow operations plan is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow).
