TOWN OF BARNSTABLE PUBLIC SAFETY ROAD CONDITIONS ALERT

Due to the severe regional shortage of salt to treat roads, we have been forced to use a sand/salt mix, and in some cases sand alone, on slippery and icy roads. The result is that the condition of the roads may not be what drivers have come to expect in the Town, and may include hard pack snow and ice.  This condition may become worse BOTH during and in the aftermath of the blizzard, which is forecast to affect our area Saturday and Sunday, February 14 and 15. Drivers are urged to use extreme caution when traveling roads during these conditions as roads that may appear to be pavement may have a dangerous coating of ice.
