ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The City of Rockford Public Works Department will begin pre-salting Arterial Routes at 3:30 PM today in anticipation of possible icing conditions.

Decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing conditions.

Citizens are urged to follow at a safe distance behind snowplows. This will prevent the salt that is being spread from hitting your vehicle and the added distance also allows a driver room to back up if needed.
