Need your road plowed? ~ http://rockfordscanner.com/2016/12/your-road-need-plowed-or-salted-in-rockford/
ROCKFORD – December 17, 2016.
The City of Rockford Public Works Department began salting Residential Routes at 7:00 AM today in advance of additional snow forecast for the afternoon and evening hours today.
Due to the additional snow expected this afternoon, residential plowing operations will not occur until the overnight hours of Saturday, December 17, 2016 through Sunday, December 18, 2016.
Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing conditions.
Citizens are urged to follow at a safe distance behind snowplows. This will prevent the salt that is being spread from hitting your vehicle and the added distance also allows a driver room to back up if needed.
