I just received another snow update from the City. Because it contains a lot of info I’ve already posted in the past few days, I’m just going to include new info and the highlights:
– Crews continue to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to complete a full City plow, including all residential areas.
– Citizens need to move their cars so they are parked on the even side of the street in the residential areas.
– Graders are being used to do an initial cut down the center of the streets and truck plows are moving the material to the side of the road. Private contractors with graders are assisting with the plowing effort.
– The full City plow likely may take longer than usual because of the slushy/icy conditions. The berms left at the end of driveways are heavy and difficult to move, especially if temperatures drop as expected over the weekend.
– Plow work has been completed in residential plow route 5 on the South Hill, and plows are working in portions of 2, 3, and 4 on the South. On the North Side, plows have completed parts of plow routes 9 and 13 and are continuing work in those areas, as well as in portions of routes 8 and 10.
Here is the link to the plow route map. Due to very heavy traffic, you may experience delays using it.
Here’s info that just came in from the County:
– Currently, County crews are using approximately 60 pieces of equipment and five private contractors with graders have been hired. Together they have moved into residential neighborhoods – especially in the northern and southeast sections of the County.
– Road crews will continue to work 24/7 to clear the entire County road system by Sunday morning.
