CHICAGO — The Department of Streets and Sanitation has deployed 210 snowplows in "anticipation of Chicago’s first measurable snowfall," the department said Sunday.
The plows, which will be salting arterial roads to ensure they are safe and clear for drivers, also will move onto neighborhood streets if necessary, according to a statement from the department.
Drivers are urged to be patient and cautious when driving during inclement weather.
The city is expecting as many as 20 snowfalls this year with more than 50 inches of total snow, which is considerably higher than the average of 36.1 inches of snowfall, according to Charles Williams, Streets and Sanitation commissioner.
