As the pending winter storm approaches, Columbia Public Works completes preparations to respond to the event.
Throughout the day crews ensured that equipment was ready to begin treating and plowing operations at the onset of the snowfall. In addition, our managers have been talking with our forecasters and monitoring the changes concerning the timing of the event.
At this time -

We urge our customers to continue to monitor the forecast for future changes to the start time of winter precipitation. As the start time of teh precipitation has now been pushed back past the morning commute, we urge you to also monitor weather and road conditions during the day Thursday as snow and or sleet is expected to be falling during the evening commute.
Use caution, slow down, and buckle up when driving on snow and ice. We will continue to post changes and updates via press releases and on Facebook and Twitter.
