With temperatures dipping below freezing and winter weather possible, crews get early start on treating roads

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Public Works Department got a head start on preparing for winter weather Friday morning.

The maintenance director told Fox 4 that crews started treating bridges and overpasses  around 3:30 a.m.

With temperatures expected to dip below freezing and a chance of precipitation on the radar, crews didn't want to take any chances with so many drivers on the road.

The Fox 4 weather team will be tracking the precipitation chances all weekend and will send push alerts if it appears to move into our area. Download the fox4kc app and be sure to sign up under “alerts” for “push notifications” so you don’t miss the alert FOX 4 Android app | FOX 4 iPhone app
