The city plows are out again, working to clear the roads as temperatures creep up and snow begins to “fluff up” and become a slushy mess.
It’s highly unusual for city crews to deploy on a second full run. But officials say conditions are beginning to deteriorate. Drivers are having a tough time negotiating in residential areas, where snow packed on the concrete, is becoming slippery as warmer weather moves in. There’s also concern wet snow could plug storm drains.
City officials say it will take 24-36 hours for road crews to plow the entire city. They’re working from the south, and moving north. The city is not under a “Snow Emergency,” but officials are asking residents to avoid parking on the street, even between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m.
Some of the snow and slush that was on the streets will be deposited on driveways and sidewalks. The city apologizes in advance for the inconvenience this may cause to residents.
They also urge that residents use caution around plow equipment.
