PRESCOTT STREETS UPDATE
Brian Scott, Street Maintenance Superintendent for the City of Prescott, released this update on the conditions of city streets late on Thursday.
At this time, all of the main arterial and collector streets are clear and completely passable, although there are some that remain wet or are draining snow melt.
Street Maintenance crews continue work to clear local residential streets, and will continue with these operations throughout the day and well into the evening hours.
As remaining areas freeze over, crews will transition into treating icy and snow packed areas, as plowing becomes ineffective when it is frozen. Another snow crew will report for duty tomorrow morning to retreat areas that need it, and to continue with any mop-up operations that remain.
They ask that you continue to drive with caution, as there will be areas of ice and snowpack, particularly during the overnight and early morning hours.
With that, the city again thanks all residents, visitors and city partners for your patience, cooperation and help during this, and all of the recent winter weather.
