PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Philadelphia Streets Department has begun salting primary and secondary roads throughout the city due to the snow.

Ninety trucks have been deployed for the operation, and the city has 50,000 tons of salt available.

One salting truck is specifically dedicated to the area around the sports complex, where crowds were anticipated for a Flyers game at 1 p.m. and a Villanova men's basketball game at 7 p.m.

The sanitation pickup scheduled for Saturday will go on as scheduled for neighborhoods with regular Friday pickup, delayed one day by the New Year's holiday.
