It's been a brutal New England winter. And the Tewksbury Department of Public Works is feeling Mother Nature's wrath in its salt supply.
The town announced on Thursday that due to a shortage of salt supplies on the northeast region, the DPW will be adjusting its sand and salt operations.
"At this time, and until stockpiles at the DPW can be revived, operations will focus on spreading sand and salt to arterial roadways and intersections, hills and curves," the town's announcement said. "Neighborhood streets will not be treated until supplies and deliveries have resumed and can be assured."
DPW representatives have been working with the State Department of Transportation and additional sources in order to replenish its supply, according to the town.
