Believe it or not, spring is just around the corner. But along with the much-welcomed warm-up comes the slush, puddles, and slick sidewalks and streets as melting snow in the day becomes ice at night.
So, it’s as important to re-up the sand or ice-melting material to minimize slips. It’s also great to have a bucket of sand on-hand as you travel to avoid having your car stuck on a slick road.
Did you know the City of Minneapolis offers several sites where residents can pick-up a FREE sand-salt mixture for their residential sidewalks and driveways? Locations are open 24-hours-a-day. Just bring your own pail and shovel!
Sand-salt pick-up locations:
- 6036 Harriet Ave., S. on West 60th St., between Lyndale and Harriet avenues
- 1809 Washington St. N.E., at 18th and Jefferson
- East 27th Street, just east of Longfellow Ave., near the Public Works gate
- 2710 Pacific St., outside the main Public Works gate between 27th and 28th Ave., N.
