it happened at the salt barn on highway 24. we have crews out there loading thousands of gallops of bip and then they hit the roads. the main priority was coating the primary highway like highway 95. this morning, the crews also installed the plows on their trucks. they are ready to move in the accumulation of snow that may occur in the area. i talked to bill amons, the county's main engineer. he says that this is one way to attack it. >> if you get a lot of rain and you see it running in the curb and gutter, it's probably being washed away. from what i've seen, the moisture anywhere from a few hundredths inches, depending upon what we get, you i'm hoping that will remoisten, may not track that much and that may good for the event monday. >> as you see, traffic here on
