Rockford Scanner™: Rockford Began Arterial Salting The Roadways

What this basically means is they are doing the main roadways, and not the residential roadways.

If your roadway is not done, call 779-348-7260.

Arterial Salting
December 16, 2019 – The City of Rockford’s Public Works Department began an Arterial salting operation at 3:30 AM.

Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing conditions.

Citizens are urged to follow at a safe distance behind salt trucks.
This will prevent the salt that’s being spread from hitting your vehicle, and the added distance also allows a driver room to back up if needed.

When we are not in a snow operation, we handle individual requests as needed. You can reach a live person 24 hours a day by calling 779-348-7260.

Decisions about further deployment will be made as needed, according to developing conditions.

The City of Rockford or its contractors are NOT responsible for plowing alley ways.
