Roads crews working early Friday morning to treat streets

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – The city says all main and secondary roads in the city are being treated around-the-clock.

Jason Peek, Topeka’s Public Works Director, said crews are working until 7 a.m and they’re making safety a top priority.

“We’ve got a great team, they’ve been through this before, they know the drill to get out there, they know the routes, they get their stuff done get back here in a timely manner, and they stay after it,” Peek said.

Crews will be checking for roads that re-freeze, since temperatures will stay below freezing.

The city warns even though they are doing their best to treat the roads, it’s still up to you to plan ahead.

They say leave early, no quick starts or stops and drive slowly.
