INDIANAPOLIS — Crews are preparing to pre-treat roads ahead of a potential wintry mix over the weekend in Central Indiana.

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works will have 80-crews starting to pre-treat roads with de-icer salt starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, according to a press release from Indianapolis DPW. If needed, crews will plow snow or slush if it accumulates on the streets.

At least 40 crews will remain on the streets from 9 p.m. Saturday until Sunday morning to continue treating the roads and slick spots, according to the release.

Once crews start treating the roads, the Indy Snow Force Viewer will be activated, according to the release. Once it's activated, you can track which streets have been treated and or plowed.

Indiana Department of Transportation crews will also treat the roadways as necessary, according to a tweet from INDOT's West Central District.

Always remember ice and snow take it SLOW!!!
