Street Condition Update for Saturday, December 3, 2016, 7:05 p.m.

Public Works has ordered a full material spreading operation of all arterial and bus routes over the next several hours.  There will be 20 units on the road.  Arterial streets remain in good condition and residential streets are slush-covered.  Bridge temperatures have dropped below freezing.

As snow fell in Lincoln throughout the day, pavement temperatures remained above freezing, which prevented snow from accumulating on driving surfaces.  Lower temperatures that have occurred this evening necessitated the need for more material to be applied.  Drivers are urged to use caution as roads may become more slick.
