Winter Vehicle Maintenance Tips For Kansas City Drivers

Winter Vehicle Maintenance Tips For Kansas City Drivers

When it comes to winter weather Kansas City is loaded for bear.

100 million pounds of salt: That’s how much the city has stockpiled to help keep the roads ice-free this winter. They started planning for this winter’s snow back during the summer when you didn’t have anything on your mind but flip-flops and crabgrass. The city has added hundreds of new drivers and dozens of new vehicles to the snow removal fleet. 

They’ve got a detailed plan in place to keep nearly 400 vehicles and hundreds of workers on the job 24 hours a day to keep 100 routes and 6,400 lane miles of blacktop clear when the big storm comes.

Winter starts this week, and the city is ready. Is your ride?
