The City of Wichita has been working since Monday in preparation for this weekend’s possible ice storm.
Public Works director Alan King said at a briefing Thursday that trucks have been depositing a brine solution onto streets to reduce the amount of ice that can accumulate. A salt-sand mix will be added to roads once the storm hits.
“We're not 100% sure what's going to happen, but we’re preparing for the worst," King said.
He said there will be some risk for drivers until trucks can lay the salt-sand mix down on all 1500 lane miles of road.
