Sand in the streets
Last week (the week of August 6, 2018) residents starting noticing sand in the streets at intersections and/or in Cul-Du-Sac's and were questioning why this was being done. We all pretty much knew it wasn't because of the monsoon storm that week, and some residents saw workers from a City contractor spreading the sand. I approached the contact person at the City of Tucson's Department of Transportation (TDOT) and got an answer.

I am sure most if not all of us have noticed after the City's recycle trucks and garbage trucks have come through doing their job, you can tell where they have been turning. I looks like they have forced oil out of the street, which is exactly what has happened on these typical hot summer days in Tucson.

The sand was spread over all the intersections and Cul-Du-Sac's to help mitigate the problem. The City's DOT will be monitoring the situation, so expect at times that you will see TDOT vehicles checking the streets and/or maybe more sand being spread.
