    2 It is impractical to develop specific rules on winter maintenance operations due to the numerous variables involved in winter storms. The judgment of the local highway patrol foreman governs the type, quantities and application schedule of materials used to control snow and ice. there is any snow or ice on the guideway. To insure complete absence of snow and ice, the entire running surface of the guideway is heated. A 50% solution of propylene glycol and water is heated to 82°C (°F) by natural gas fired boilers in three locations along the guideway and circulated by pumps through steel/nickel/copper alloy pipes.

    Performance Measures for Snow and Ice Control in the Province of Alberta. No link available Performance Measures for Winter Operations. No link available Predicting Weather and Road Conditions: An Integrated Decision Support Tool for Winter Road Maintenance Operations. During the winter season, the following key services are delivered: Snow & ice control services including anti-icing, snow plowing, de-icing and snow removal operationsGeneral maintenance of roadside assets (conducted year round).

    WSDOT Maintenance Manual M Page iii June Foreword Washington State Maintenance Operations personnel work through many challenges in maintaining the state highway system, including; increasing growth in population and vehicles, and extreme weather patterns that can bring wind, rain, snow, and ice. De-icing typically consists of plowing snow and slush off the roadway along with the application of chemicals and/or abrasives. Snow and ice control chemicals work to melt ice and lower the freezing point of water. Sodium chloride, or rock salt, is the most common de-icing chemical and is most effective at temperatures above 15 °F.

This Snow and Ice Control Guidebook summarizes common snow and ice control tools and serves as an introduction to the field of winter maintenance for operators and managers.

Minnesota local agencies perform winter maintenance to keep roads clear for the traveling public. Develop operational and maintenance objectives to meet/refine goals Snow and ice- control outcome based objectives are defined in the following seven categories: 1.

The model includes delay costs incurred by riders when the transportation system is unavailable as a result of snow or ice accumulation on the running surface. This cost is added to the capital, operating, and maintenance costs, and an optimum cost-design point is identified for an electrically heated concrete guideway.

Construction Width and Length. The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure standard cleared width on large lakes is forty-five (45) meters.

Snow and Ice Control Operational planning for snow and ice control is performed on an annual basis. However, it is decentralized to the various regional areas of the Province and there are no longer-term, Province-wide strategic plans and no well-defined, measurable performance standards.

This primer is intended to help the public under- than that which is required to de-ice the road once the snow/ice pack has formed.

It also. practices, and limitations for snow and ice control on parking lots and sidewalks. This manual is designed to encourage environmentally responsible methods for snow and ice control that will help you reduce salt/sand use and mitigate environmental impacts while meeting the safety and mobility needs of sidewalk and parking lot users.

The purpose of this field handbook is to help promote the understanding of the tools, best practices, and limitations for snow and ice control. The handbook will also help you under- stand when to use and when not to use these tools and prac- tices. These resources include snow and ice control strategies and tactics, materials, equipment, and manpower.

Attachment 1 provides recommended guidelines for using road and weather information to make snow and ice control treatment decisions. Chapter 8 provides recommended oper- ational guidelines for winter maintenance field personnel.

Snow and Ice Control Standards When it comes to snow and ice control, everyone in Nova Scotia wants to know that, regardless of where they live, they are receiving the same level of service as anyone else in our province. To meet the demand for consistent and efficient service, the province has developed winter maintenance performance.

The purpose of this manual is to establish an acceptable policy and operational procedures for snow and ice control on public streets under the jurisdiction of the City of Idaho Falls. This policy provides a uniform understanding of the priorities and procedures used to combat accumulation of snow and ice.

During event: Apply deicing chemicals to roadway during a snow event to keep snow and ice from accumulating and bonding to the pavement and to expedite the process of mechanical removal. If compact snow or black ice forms on the roadway, apply pre-wet solid chemicals to break the snow/ice bond and to assist the process of mechanical removal.
