TULSA, Okla. — The City of Tulsa released an update on their winter weather response plan.
Street crews came in at midnight and applied brine – a salt and water mix – on the roads. The city said the crews focused on intersections and plowing areas of town that received higher amounts of sleet.
Crews will be in at 11:30 p.m. Monday night, and morning crews will return at midnight Tuesday to continue treating the roads. The city said 24/7 snow and ice operations are expected to run through Wednesday.
During winter weather response, the city explained their first focus is to clear “city arterial streets for emergency responders.
“After arterial streets are clear, the second focus moves to residential or collector streets near hospitals, schools and steep hills,” the city wrote in a statement.
The City of Tulsa released every map and route in Tulsa that is used for arterial streets, collector streets, schools and steep hills on their website.
