Refreezing precipitation a concern, slick roads could stick around another day

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Salt truck crews worked overnight and continue to salt side streets and main roads Wednesday morning, Feb. 23.

As low temperatures moved back in this morning, refreezing precipitation is a concern for roads. 

According to the Department of Public Works, they're hitting residential areas using underbelly plows to crush up the ice and sleet.

"While temperatures are expected to be low today, the sunlight and vehicle traffic is expected to further activate the salt product that is on the pavement," the DPW said in a release this morning. 

Sidewalks are also a concern, and people are reminded to take it slow when leaving the house. 

A spokesperson for Racine's Public Works Department says I-94 and county roads are the main priority.
