Woodbridge DPW prepares for potential snowstorm

The areas surrounding Woodbridge is expected to get up to 10 inches of snow during Thursday's snowstorm.



The town's Department of Public Works says it has nearly 3,000 tons of salt ready for the roads, which were already pre-treated with a brine solution.



DPW crews were expected to start around come back to work around 4 a.m. when the first snowflakes start to call.



"We'll put everyone on the road tomorrow since snow will fall fast and send as much equipment on the road as possible," says Woodbridge DPW director Dennis Henry. "So we will probably have 70 trucks, so if one breaks down, we can give him another truck."



The heaviest snowfall is expected to start around 7 a.m. and last until noon. The snow may taper off around 2 p.m. or 3 p.m.



Drivers are advised to stay off the roadways as much as possible to allow crews clear the way.
