City Snow Fleet Focuses On Residential Streets


UPDATED: Friday December 28, 2012 6:38 PM

Columbus Snow Warriors are continuing to make progress, with more than half of all residential streets clear.

Though many have reported that their streets have not been touched, Columbus city officials said that 58 trucks are on the road.

Officials said that state Routes 315, 104 and 68 have been plowed and salted.

Roughly 74 percent of collector residential streets, like Weber Road and Hague Avenue, have also been plowed.

Resident Robert Joseph said that he is pretty pleased with the road conditions.

"There are 1 million people who live in Columbus, so it's pretty hard to get everyone happy, isn't it," Joseph said.

Resident Peg McClain was similarly pleased.

"This for Westgate is great," McClain said. "In the past, we would have never had it plowed down like that for weeks."

Sixty-four percent of residential streets have been plowed, which is up from 20 percent at 11 p.m. Thursday.

During the next 24 to 36 hours, crews said that they plan to complete more residential streets.

The city of Columbus is responsible for 227 square miles of street.
