Cinders are applied to major hills, signalized intersections, railroad crossings, shaded areas, problem areas, and stop signed intersections. We limit the use of cinders in residential areas and flat roads.
Cinders must be reapplied frequently due to traffic pushing the cinders into the snow/ice, crushing or blowing off the roadway.
Please call the Streets section at (928) 213-2175 during normal business hours and provide a detailed account of any concerns. The Streets section may be reached at the aforementioned phone number Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
