Update, 12:00: Click video for the latest update from Alan King, Director of Public Works and Utilities, Wichita

WICHITA, Kansas — The City of Wichita sent out a storm response update Sunday morning noting that crews will continue to treat Wichita roads throughout the day.

The report said plow trucks are currently running with their plows raised. They said it takes “eight hours to make a pass through all 1,500 lane miles of the primary routes.” There are currently 50 trucks deployed.

Plow operators will be adjusting to any changes as the day goes on. If snow begins to accumulate plows will be lowered to clear the roadways.

The update noted that roads are slick and traveling is expected to remain hazardous through the end of the storm.

Public Works & Utilities officials will hold a briefing Sunday at noon. KSN will bring that to you on KSN TV and KSN.com.
