I have read more local accidents last winter than I can remember in the last 8 years
I have now lived in North Dakota for eight years, so I can no longer consider myself a “rookie” here, I am aware of how quickly the weather can change, and with the temperatures rising, basic common sense will tell you that the snow and ice will melt. This is where it can get dangerous, as I have experienced many times how dangerous and slippery the road conditions can get. This can of course lead to unforeseen accidents, which will end up venting their frustrations on social media about how some people aren’t doing their jobs well enough. Bismarck city workers who are responsible for the roads in our city.
Personally I think they do a great job and are quick and efficient
Think about how quickly storms sometimes hit us and how much we all rely on our streets and roads to get us around. Freezing temperatures and warmer days can add up to a major headache. So how busy have Bismarck city workers been?
This stat will blow your mind (no pun intended)
Sandblasting and salting in town was so badly needed. According to kfyrtv.com “So far this year, the city has used nearly 38,000 gallons of beet brine, over 17,000 gallons of salt brine, 190 tons of salt and over 2,300 tons of sand on the city roads. That’s more than the previous two years.” So try to remember that people are doing their best and as fast as they can to get us there safely.
