With the arrival of winter comes snow, freezing temperatures and dangerous ice-covered sidewalks and roads.And with the vastness of campus, chances are students are going to have to brave some ice and snow on the roads and sidewalks while the removal crews scurry to keep things safe.To stay safe during the winter months, the plant operations snow removal force has issued the following suggestions: Vehicles need to have good tire tread for extra traction on steep campus roads. Keep a shovel in your car for emergency situations. Wear footwear that provides the best traction possible, even if it requires changing shoes at your destination.With a mission of keeping the U campus open 24-7, the force is constantly monitoring the miles of sidewalks, ramps, stairs, patios, buildings and parking lots to ensure the campus community can have a safe experience at the U.
