Wichita road crews working to keep streets clear

WICHITA, Kansas – The Wichita Public Works Department says their salt supply is about 30 percent with the latest winter storm.

On Tuesday, trucks kept rolling in and out of the maintenance facility located at Harry and McLean.

Crews are working 12 hours shifts to clear streets until the storm is over.

Crews say they are going to plow first, and then, they are going to begin salting.

They are sanding elevated roadways, and the bottom of exit ramps.

The city is also working to replenish its dwindling salt supply.

“We continue to visit with alternative suppliers in the state, but obviously, everyone in the state is in the same situation with the demand,” said Joe Pajor, Wichita Public Works.
