As Treasure Valley residents had visions of snow in their heads on Friday, Ada County Highway District workers were prepping roads for the coming storm.
Maintenance crews applied deicer to major arterial roads, intersections, bridges and other priority areas to prevent ice from bonding to pavement, ACHD announced.
Its always better to get out in front of the weather than to try and play catch up, Paul Daigle, ACHDs deputy director of maintenance, said.
The snow that was forecast to start falling Friday night in Boise was expected to continue into Saturday, mainly before 11 a.m., according to the National Weather Service. New snow accumulation of less than an inch was forecast for Saturday.
