The last priority is cul-de-sacs, or small roads with only one way in and out. However, if another storm comes, the city starts over with first priority roads.
“Our full deployment is 45 plows and we run a 24-hour operation, so we have 90 employees that keep those 45 vehicles and salting machines out on a constant basis if we need it,” Graham said.
Salt Lake City has 1,865 lane miles of roadway to plow, and about 600 tons of salt are used during a typical storm like Thursday’s.
“We go through this every year,” Graham said, “but generally I think our public understands that we live in these conditions, and that’s just the nature of life here.”
