Department of Sanitation in Castle Hill prepares to combat snowstorm
The Department of Sanitation is preparing to combat snow expected to be dumped on the Bronx this weekend.
Mayor Bill de Blasio held a press conference yesterday saying he is confident the DSNY and its many sister agencies have the resources to make the roads safe.
The mayor has issued a hazardous travel advisory for Saturday through Sunday.
Officials with the DSNY in Castle Hill say they will deploy workers on two split 12-hour shifts with 2,300 workers per shift to pre-treat the city's roadways.
The mayor says between the Department of Sanitation and other agencies, close to 2,000 vehicles will be fitted with plows.
The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for the Bronx, including all other boroughs of New York City.
