MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - The City of Memphis is putting crews into action to make sure you stay safe as the threat of some wintry weather approaches.
A full shift of Memphis Public Works employees will report to work at 11 p.m. Monday. Twelve trucks will stay on the streets until at least 7 a.m., possibly even longer if warranted by icy conditions.
The greatest threat of the icy roads is expected to be overnight.
However, many Mid-South drivers made clear they are ready to deal with potentially slick conditions.
"Just go a little slower, mostly," said a Memphis driver.
Another added, "Just try to be careful, not use my cell phone, stay buckled up, and watch for people."
Memphis Public Works employees are ready with the massive mixture that will be applied to bridges, overpasses, and major roadways.
