Preparing for the snow
North of M59 could see 4-8" of snow
Try to enjoy your drive to work today. Tomorrow, you’ll share the road with snow plows and salt trucks.
The biggest snowfall is expected along the M59 corridor and north – some estimates show the snow could be 4-8”.
"It's going to make my life more difficult," said Tiffany Smith of Macomb County. "I hate driving in the snow."
But Smith's daughter, Aniyah, hopes tomorrow brings a snow day at her school, "I think I won't be able to go to school."
We checked with county road commissions and here are their plans for today:
-Most of today will be business as usual with crews out patching potholes before switching to their snow plan.
-At the first sign of snowfall, crews are called in .
-One thing you will not notice much of is pre-treating the roads with salt or brine, The Wayne County Road Commission says existing salt on the roads will be effective.
