The County does not assure a completely bare road and it will not sand entire sections of roadway. Phased plowing - There are three phases to the process.
- Make the road passable by cleaning one lane in each direction.
- Widen the lanes to the edge of the shoulders. Sanding takes place at problem locations, including intersections, curves, hills, and bridges. The salt mixture varies with temperature and road conditions.
- Cleanup, during which ice and slush are removed and the sun is allowed to do its work.
