Wichita city crews are continuing to treat the streets and problem spots.  

Joe Pajor, Deputy Director of Public Works and Utilities, said city crews have been treating the streets since freezing drizzle started Tuesday morning. 

Crews have been working 12 hour shifts. There are 60 plows on the street. 

On Wednesday night, the city experienced thundersnow which made treating the streets a little more challenging. 

“That resulted in periods of downpours that did wash away a lot of the treatment in certain locations of the city,” said Pajor. 

Pajor said the city has plenty of salt and sand in reserve to treat the streets for future winter storms. 

He said KDOT crews manage the federal highway system which includes K-96, Kellogg, I-235 and I-135 in the Wichita area.
