How long does it take to clear the streets?

On average, it takes three crew members about 4-6 hours to salt and 10-12 hours of round-the-clock coverage to plow one cycle of De Soto’s 112 lane miles; this is dependent on the intensity of the event, the temperatures, the number of cars parked in Emergency Snow Routes, and traffic. It can take several cycles to satisfactorily complete the entire operation.
