Oklahoma City -

Oklahoma City crews are preparing for another round of winter weather.

In total 29 trucks, equipped with plows and salt spreaders worked to pre-salt the roads ahead of Tuesday's winter storm.

OKC crews will be focused only on the the city's snow routes.

This is the second round of snow in about 48 hours for the metro. Its’s not just affecting the salt trucks, but also the continuous debris removal efforts from October's ice storm.

“Under the debris, the ground does get a little soft,” said Michael Gilliland, the owner of Pride and Dixie Trucking and Tree Services. “We try to make sure everything is picked up in a timely matter to make sure we don’t cause any damages.”

Gilliland said as long as the city does their part in salting the roads, they should ultimately be fine.

The City is advising people to turn off their sprinkler systems to avoid any further ice build up on both the roads and sidewalks.
