Message from Memphis Airport:
With the exception of Atlanta and Charlotte (all flights in and out of those cities cancelled), we are running normal operations w/ no issues.
Message from City of Memphis:
The Public Works Division-Maintenance Department began addressing projected inclement weather conditions on Monday, February 11th by applying a brine solution (salt residue that forms a bond on the pavement to prevent icing) on city streets, which is part of our "anti-icing operation." At this time, crews are performing our "De-Icing Operation" in which consists of dispensing a salt/sand mixture throughout designated routes that include bridges and overpasses.
(12) Twelve "Salt and Sand Trucks" have been deployed to inspect their routes and apply materials on bridges/overpasses and inclines/declines that require it. We will continue to cover routes across the entire city for as long as necessary to ensure public safety during this winter weather event.
