Tight Supply Forces Springfield To Be ''Conservative'' With Road Salt


It may not be what Springfield drivers want to hear, but the city’s public works director says crews will be “conservative” with their use of road salt during the latest winter storm. 

 

Public works director Mark Mahoney says that the city has already used about six-thousand-tons of salt this winter… and has just a few hundred tons on hand. 

 

Replenishing the supply has been difficult at times because ice has slowed the river barges that bring it to Central Illinois.  Mahoney hopes to stretch the city’s current supply to deal with the effects of as much as 7 inches of snow.
