Plow drivers treat roads overnight for Thursday’s commute

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – City plow drivers will work overnight Wednesday treating roadways for Thursday morning’s commute.

Frank Suarez, spokesperson for Fort Wayne Public Works, said 50 trucks were out treating roads Wednesday. Some of those trucks will be working overnight to treat slick spots and plow remaining snow left on main and secondary streets.

“The roads should be passable and even the secondary roads,” Suarez said. “We’ll still be working in the neighborhoods and the residential streets. So there may still be some issues in some of those neighborhoods.”

Crews will be working into late Thursday afternoon trying to clear all residential areas across the city.

Suarez said the sun from Wednesday afternoon also helped with melting ice and snow off the roadways, making it easy for road crews to plow and salt.

He advises drivers to slow down and be cautious for Thursday’s commute. provides commenting on many stories to allow for constructive discussion.
