Three Safety Tips to be Prepared for Boston Snow

November, 19, 2020 By CASSIDY PAVING 6 min read
If you’re from the Boston or New England area you understand that the snow and ice can be persistent for many months of the year. Whether you are a lifetime Bostonian or new to the area, there are some things that you can do now to make you and your family as safe as possible throughout the winter. Here are the top three safety tips that the asphalt experts and lifelong Massachusetts residents at Cassidy Paving suggest on being prepared for the Boston snow.

Make Your Car Winter-Ready

Driving does not stop just because the roads have ice and snow. If you live in Boston, you understand that life must go on even when the ground is covered in several feet of snowfall. Some expert tips for winter care preparedness from Constellation include checking your tire tread, filling up the air in your tires, considering snow tires, changing the oil and antifreeze, fixing the heater, and inspecting your battery. These are all important parts of your car working properly throughout the winter. You must prepare it both inside and out regardless of the conditions of the roads.

Complete Asphalt Repairs

If you are a homeowner with an asphalt pavement driveway or a business owner with an asphalt parking lot, there are many things you can do to prepare for cold weather. If there are any outstanding repairs such as potholes, cracks, or drainage issues that you know need to be fixed, now is the time to do it. Once the freeze and thaw cycle begins, anything that was already in disrepair will get even worse. You want to make sure your asphalt paving is as safe as possible and will be usable regardless of the amount of snow on it. Cassidy Paving can help you with repairs, new constructions, and any other asphalt pavement needs in the warmer months that will help to prepare you for a long Boston winter.

Get the Shovel Ready

Once the show begins, you’ll need to ensure that your driving area is passable. Sometimes this can even mean getting out the snow shovel yourself. If your driveway has accumulated enough ice and snow that it hinders traction for your car’s tires, you should have a removal plan. There are also deicers on the market that can help you keep a better handle on the accumulation throughout the winter. Similarly, if you manage a property or own a business, commercial snow removal companies like Cassidy Paving are also around to help you throughout the season with scalable and flexible contracts. You don’t want to find yourself without a plan when your pavement is covered in several feet of snow. Make sure you have a plan in play to get the snow removed when it eventually comes.
