Tow truck crews prepare for icy weather

Lance Burda has been in the towing business for 20 years. He owns Burda’s Towing which has seven locations in the West Metro.

“There were three of us scheduled tomorrow that were planned, but I’m just sending the message out to the guys that if this freezing rain that they are talking, just trying to see who is available and who can come in,” Burda says.

According to AAA 2016 holiday travel numbers, a record number of travelers are expected on roadways nationwide during the holiday season.

“It can go from nothing to absolute chaos in a matter of moments when that weather moves in,” Burda says.

MnDOT also says it has plans to shift to its storm schedule, which is two 12 hour shifts, to keep roads salted and sanded if need be.

MnDOT spokesman Kevin Gutknecht says despite the holiday weekend, they will have drivers on call in the case more are needed on roadways statewide.
