Due to the large amount of snow that fell, residents are asked to be patient as crews continue with the cleanup of areas that may have been overlooked or require additional services.

EATON COUNTY UPDATE:

Drivers and contractors started at 4am and will continue plowing until 6pm, while a small night crew will work through the night.

The Eaton County Road Commission says about 2/3 of the gravel roads open and hope to get to the rest by tonight. However, trucks are getting stuck due to the drifts, which is slowing crews down.

About 60% of the subdivision streets in Delta Township open, and have trucks working on opening the rest right now in Delta, Windsor and Oneida Townships. Crews hope to finish those areas tonight.

The Eaton County Road Commission has encountered multiple vehicles stuck in the roadway, which slows the plows down because they can't get around the vehicle. If your road has not been plowed, and it looks like you could get stuck, please do not attempt to get out. Roads will get cleared faster if drivers aren't hindered by vehicles blocking the roadway.

The Road Commission can't give residents an exact time on when your road will be plowed. Many variables can affect the plow schedule, including the amount of snow, the type of snow and the amount of blowing and drifting. Know that trucks are out in full force and will get to you as soon as they can.
