Full shift of 80 DPW trucks pre-treating roads for winter weather


INDIANAPOLIS — The Indianapolis Department of Public Works announced that a full shift of 80 trucks hit the streets Sunday night to pre-treat roadways ahead of the snow that is expected to fall in central Indiana.

Crews started at 11 p.m. Sunday and will remain activated through at least Tuesday night to treat roads and plow standard routes as weather warrants.

DPW asks drivers to keep at least three car lengths between their vehicle and snow trucks.

The Indy Snow Force Viewer shows where roads have been plowed or treated with salt.

With the chance of strong wind gusts also in the forecast, DPW says additional staff will be on stand-by to address any damaged traffic signals or downed tree limbs that block the roadway. Contact the Mayor’s Action Center at 317-327-4622 to report these issues.
