FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Crews had plowed more than fifty percent of residential streets through Thursday morning, but then returned to main roads to deal with the morning snowfall and black ice according to a City of Fort Wayne spokesperson.
Plows then returned to residential areas neighborhoods and are expected to work through the night to complete the neighborhoods. After the neighborhoods are plowed crews will treat residential streets with a mixture of fine sand and beet juice to provide traction and melt in these residential streets.
Residents are being asked to clear the sidewalks in front of their homes and to not let snow pile so high near intersections that it causes line of sight issues. Fire hydrants should also be visible and not covered with snow.
