The Clarksville Street Department began salting city streets at about 5:00am Friday, as temperatures dropped amid rain and drizzle.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Watch, indicating a system will move in Friday morning, bringing rain that will turn into a mix of freezing rain and sleet around sunrise, and then to snow by mid morning, with snow lasting into Friday evening. Ice accumulations up to one-tenth of an inch, with snow accumulations up to 4 inches, are possible.

The Street Department has 30 trucks equipped with plows and salt boxes and about 10,000 tons of salt on hand to distribute on City streets as required.

The Clarksville Street Department focuses first on City thoroughfares and hilly areas, and then spreads its efforts to subdivisions and residential streets.

Clarksville Transit System will continue its regular route service for as long as possible, but if road conditions worsen, it will implement a “snow routes” plan, whereby buses avoid hilly areas and stay on the main roads.
