A fleet of 55 trucks will roll-over Wichita streets Tuesday night.
"We're not expecting a lot in the way of moisture. There's a small chance of flurries later on tonight,” Traffic Maintenance and Street Cleaning Supervisor Terry Nicholas said.
His crews are worried about a re-freeze.
"We pretty much got it covered as best as it can get covered. We feel comfortable with that,” Nicholas said.
Even though the storm has passed, street crews are still working 12-hour shifts until the driving danger melts away.
"We've basically gone over multiple times as this event has gone from flurry to freezing drizzle, to flurry to freezing drizzle,” Nicholas said.
One dome was nearly full of the salt and sand mixture at the beginning the winter storm season. But after the last few rounds of winter weather only about a quarter of the mixture is left.
"We will have to re-fill this dome, but we have two totally full domes at the other two substations,” Nicholas said.
One driver says he has noticed the around-the-clock work.
"City got around to getting all the rocks laid down and everything. It's been nice. It's not slick at all,” Robert Miller said.
But there's still a concern about a re-freeze. That's why the treatment trucks will work through another night.
"We do our best to do what we can, but you can’t make it perfect and dry everywhere,” Nicholas said.
The city does not treat every residential road. Street crews will take care of large arteries, collectors, and school routes.
