City Works to Remove Sanding Gravel from Streets, 2/18/2014 3:31 PM
The City of Salem Public Works Department applied 1,500 tons (3,000,000 pounds) of sanding rock to provide traction to motorists during the winter storm that began on Thursday, February 6, and continued through Saturday, February 8, 2014. City forces began clean-up of the rock once snow had melted from the streets on Wednesday, February 12, 2014.

The City is running three sweeper trucks during nighttime hours, and four sweeper trucks plus a self-propelled power broom during daytime hours, for a total of 20 hours per day in order to pick-up the sanding rock as quickly as possible. Public Works officials anticipate it will take approximately three to four weeks in order to remove all of the sanding rock. It takes three sweeper truck loads to remove one dump truck load of sanding rock.

Until it is removed, officials warn motorists and bicyclists to use caution at intersections, hills, curves, and in bicycle lanes where sanding rock is present, as it can cause a loss of traction in dry pavement conditions.
