DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - As the rain turns to snow around the Miami Valley, Dayton is detailing it's plan on how to deal with the impact on the roads from the winter weather.

We're expecting a mix of ice and snow to cover the roadways, and the City's Department of Public Works said it will use this plan for treating streets:

On Friday until midnight, 45 trucks will be out to salt and plow first and second priority roadways, which are highways, arterial streets, ridges and hills, as well as second priority roadways, which are collector streets that travel in and out of neighborhoods.

Beginning at midnight through 9 a.m. on Saturday, 31 drivers will report to work to continue treatment to both first and second priority roads. From that point on, and once all first and second priory streets are cleared, crews wukk nive ib ti resudebtuak streets,

Personnel will be working over the weekend to make sure entries at all city facilities are accessible, and the city encourages business and parking lot operators to move snow to the curb line but not into the street.

Residents are also encouraged to check on their elderly or ill neighbors during and after the storm.
