Workers for the Montgomery County Highway and Crawfordsville Street departments are preparing for the coming winter weather.

Montgomery County Highway Director Rod Jenkins said this is no different than any other winter weather event.

"We are getting ready," he said. "The trucks are going to be loaded and ready to roll out this evening."

Crawfordsville Street Commissioner Scott Hesler said his crews are also getting their equipment ready.

"We are making sure all our equipment is fueled and ready," he said.

Jenkins said that county crews will do a little pre-treating of hills ahead of tonight's snow and ice.

"When they start predicting ice we change our plans and do a little pre-treating," he said.

Hesler said the city does not plan on pre-treating at this time because they do not know what will come first: Snow and ice or rain.

"No one is real clear if it is coming in first," Hesler said. "If it rains it washes away the pre-treatment you put down."

Both Jenkins and Hesler said that there is no specific time to get the trucks on the road.

"You have to play a lot of it by ear," Jenkins said. He expects county trucks to be out by 4 a.m.

Hesler said that city crews will not get the call until the snow starts to fall.

"We will make it as clear as we can for people to get to school and work in the morning," Hesler said.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Montgomery County that will begin at 7 p.m. tonight and continue through 10 a.m. Friday. They are calling for snow to change to sleet, with .1 inch of ice.
