Street Crews Prepare For Storm Cleanup.

A three day storm is getting underway today that is expected to drop as much as a foot and a half of snow on Helena. Travel conditions are expected to worsen through the day today. The City Streets Division in Helena has been preparing for a big storm like this one, planning for pilot projects that include plowing to the curb, reviewing snow routes, flexible shift starts for plow drivers and using Ice Slicer instead of rock chips on some areas. Ice Slicer is a salt product that’s less corrosive than rock salt.
