Local crews are preparing to hit the roads ahead of snow in the forecast.

The Philadelphia Streets Department is getting ready to deploy trucks to salt primary and secondary roads throughout the city.

We're told crews will be dispatched starting at 2 a.m., to make sure the rush hour goes smoothly.

At least 70 trucks will be hitting the road.

The city says it has plenty of salt for the job - 47 tons to be exact.

In New Jersey, salt trucks are at the ready.

At the salt yard on Route 30 in Galloway Township, snow plows have been attached to the front of trucks, ready to hit the roads.
