GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Many of us are bracing ourselves for round two of the wintry mix.

Greensboro city crews are working a 12-hour shift starting Friday evening to pre-treat the roads.

They’ll be hitting about 25 of the main city streets and going over the bridges with salt brine. Ten trucks will be out on the roads overnight to put out 50-60 thousand gallons of solution on the streets.

The Guilford County School System is preparing too.

Director of Maintenance, Gerald Greeson, says they’ve been repairing any of their damaged plow trucks and equipment following the last winter storm a few weeks back.

The school system has 14 plow trucks to help clean the parking lots and surrounding areas on their campuses and administration buildings.

School system maintenance crews even started putting out brine at certain locations. Greeson says their priority is making the school premises as safe as possible for staff and students.
