Sand Available at Crossing Guard Intersections
On the verge of yet another inclement weather forecast, maintaining safe sidewalks and pedestrian ramps can be a very stressful situation. The City of Marshfield Street Division is assisting City residents by making available a sand/salt mixture. The sand/salt mixture is available at designated locations around schools that are known to be occupied by a crossing guard.
Sand/Salt locations include:
- Walnut & Upham
- 8th & Peach
- St. Joseph’s & Upham
- 17th & Felker
- 5th & Columbus
- 17th & Palmetto
- 7th & Chestnut
- Peach & Becker
- 14th & Schmidt
- Peach & Doege
- 11th & Adams
- Oak & Upham
The Street Division asks that you remember that the crossing guard, students, and other citizens also depend upon the sand/salt. For this reason, we suggest limiting to one coffee can for a normal sidewalk frontage.
The sand/salt mixture will not and should not eliminate the need for a homeowner to shovel/scrape, but will simply allow time and traction until the snow and ice can be removed adequately.
The Division’s immediate focus during a snow event is the safety of the public traveling on the streets. The salt/sand mixture locations are checked and resupplied as time allows.
For more information, please contact Marshfield Street Division at 715.486.2081.
