[ARCHIVED] Icy Road Conditions and Winter Freezing Tips

In cases of icy road conditions, please note sanding procedures for city roadways.

-The City of Allen Community Services Department has three dump trucks available to drop a mixture of sand and “environmentally friendly” ice melt mixture.
-Sanding priority is given to bridge overpasses, major street intersections, hills and inclines on major streets (such as McDermott/Bethany/Exchange Parkway) and critical slick spots identified by the Police Department Traffic Division.
-Due to limited resources, mixture is not applied to all roads or residential streets. Also, the City does not sand TXDOT roadways such as US-75 through Allen and Stacy Road, east of Greenville.

Residents are reminded to safeguard water pipes during freezing temperatures. For assistance in shutting off water due to a broken pipe or water or sewer line issue, call 214.509.4530 (24-hour emergency response available).
