TULSA, Oklahoma — Tulsa mayor Dewey Bartlett says the city is ready to deal with snow and ice and keep the city's arterial streets drivable as quickly as possible when winter weather strikes.

Bartlett said Wednesday that the city is preparing for the upcoming winter season. The city is responsible for clearing snow and ice from certain segments of the Tulsa expressway system and all main arterial streets. Other expressway segments in Tulsa are the responsibility of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.

The goal of the program is to make expressways and arterial streets safe and passable as soon as possible after snowfall or ice begins.

Resources available to the city include 63 truck-mounted sand-salt spreaders and 46 truck-mounted snow plows. The spreaders are assigned to 35 specific routes totaling 1,768 lane-miles.
