Trumbull plows ready to tackle winter blast

WARREN, Ohio- The salt trucks should be hitting the streets to pre-treat roadways before the storm moves in.

It's possible some regions in Trumbull County could see enough snow to reach the top of your boots.

The county will monitor road conditions and use GPS weather tracking throughout the day Wednesday.

About 25 crews are scheduled to prepare heavily traveled routes beginning at 7 a.m.

"A typical route is probably an average of 40 lane miles," Gregg Alberini said, Trumbull County highway superintendent.

"They'll go out, initially pre-treat and then then keep everything plowed off until the storm's over, in the meantime, during the storm, they'll treat intersections, curves and hills," he said.

If you're behind the wheel, Alberini recommends drivers take it slow and allow for extra time on their commute.
