Rough Winter Means Less Salt For Iowa City Roads

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Drivers in Iowa City will need to be extra cautious during upcoming winter storms.

City officials said Wednesday they are dealing with a bit of a salt shortage and plan to begin using salt sparingly to conserve what they have left.

"We will still apply salt in place where it's needed most," said Rick Fosse, Iowa City's public works director.

Fosse said the city will continue to use salt on hills and slopes and in other areas that typically become slick during snow and ice storms. The city will also continue using sand to create traction in various areas.

City officials expect to surpass the annual winter snow removal budget of $540,000. Fosse said a big challenge this year is that none of the snow from previous storms has melted.

City crews are expected to be out Wednesday night removing snow from downtown streets.
