PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Streets Department crews are preparing for the winter storm and urging motorists and pedestrians to use caution as the storm worsens.

Department officials say they will begin salting roads at 4 p.m. and continue monitoring conditions throughout the evening.

Officials want to remind residents that “a path of at least 36” wide on sidewalks is required within 6 hours of the end of a storm.”

The Streets Department provided the following tips for snow and ice management:

  • Apply commercial de-icer to your stairs and sidewalks early to prevent icy conditions.
  • Park your car as far from the corner as possible. Cars parked too close to the corner impede the turning radius of salting vehicles.
  • Remove ice and snow from windows, mirrors and all vehicle lights; State law requires removal of snow and ice from the hood and roof of vehicles.
  • Check on sick and elderly neighbors.
  • Stay tuned to local media for further updates for weather and traffic reports.
