City of DeSoto Street Sanding Policy For Icy Conditions As sleeƟng or icing begins, the City of DeSoto Street Department will sand or treat with a brine soluƟon, the busiest  intersecƟons beginning on the Hampton, Cockrell Hill, Pleasant Run, and Belt Line Road corridors; then they will treat  the remaining intersecƟons; followed by bridges and major roads with steep grades.  If ice persists longer than two  days, major roads such as Cockrell Hill, Hampton, and Belt Line may be sanded or treated the enƟre length (as  resources permit). Belt Line Road is a State Highway and the Texas Department of TransportaƟon will also sand it.   Street closures may occur if streets are not passable and/or mulƟple accidents have occurred.  Street closures will be  coordinated with the Police Department. ParƟcular aƩenƟon will be paid to Belt Line, Cockrell Hill and ChaƩey Roads.   It is the policy of the City of DeSoto not to sand residenƟal streets or alleys unless it is needed to assist with access  for an emergency vehicle.  Special requests for sanding are not accepted.  As a resident, there are things that you can do to help as follows:    If possible, stay at home.   If you have to leave home, be alert and drive with cauƟon, remembering snow and ice create slick road  condiƟons.   Maintain safe distances between vehicles, decrease your driving speed and allow addiƟonal Ɵme to stop.   Do not pass sand spreader or brine treatment trucks. Park vehicles off of roadways if possible. Be mindful of  driving on streets with no curbs. You may slide into side drainage ditches.   Mailboxes may be damaged.  If they are damaged by City equipment, the City will replace the mailbox.  Otherwise replacement will be the homeowner’s responsibility.  Ice storms cause downed trees and power lines resulƟng in a loss of electricity. Downed trees on private property are the homeowner’s responsibility. The City will only clear the street right‐of‐way. ONCOR will be contacted to address downed power lines.
