MADISON, Wis. - Monday morning’s commute may be slower than normal as snow continues to fall throughout the Madison area and city crews are out plowing.

The Streets Division had crews out all Saturday night on salt routes, with two trucks sanding residential streets at hills, curve and intersections, according to a release.

Thirty-two drivers will come in at noon on Sunday and work through the afternoon and evening, officials said. Crews will be applying salt on salt routes as long as temperatures allow.

“Temperatures are forecast to drop, so we will be switching to sand at some time this evening,” the Sunday release said.

Most main streets should be in good winter driving conditions, but there will be a lot of blowing snow in open areas, officials said.

“We are going to be paying close attention to areas that are prone to blowing and drifting snow, but drivers should use caution,” the release said.

Officials said even though they plan to have crews out overnight, drivers should plan for a slower-than-normal commute Monday morning.
