ROCKFORD – January 15, 2022 – The City of Rockford Public Works Department began salting
Arterial Routes at 1:30 AM today.
Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing
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.

The roads are very slippery in many places still. 

If you need to travel, use caution and allow extra time. 

Light snow will continue into the early morning hours. Most locations will see snow accumulations under 1 inch, but there will be some localized amounts over 1 inch possible. As temperatures continue to slowly fall through the 20s tonight, untreated surfaces will become snow covered and slippery.
