The City of Tulsa is responsible for clearing snow and ice from certain segments of the Tulsa expressway system and all arterial (main) streets. Other expressway segments in Tulsa are the responsibility of the Oklahoma Department of Transportation.
The goal of the program is to make expressways and arterial streets safe and passable as soon as possible after snowfall or ice begins.
These resources are available to attain this goal:
The spreaders are assigned to 35 specific routes totaling 1,742 lane-miles. Spreading and plowing routes are prioritized based on traffic counts. Once the main streets are cleared and conditions permit, selected residential streets are treated based upon traffic and steepness.
