Snow plow crews in the City of St. Louis are changing their strategy for clearing the roads during this storm.
One of the chief complaints with the last big winter storm was that plows clearing main thoroughfares had created snow mounds that blocked the streets leading into residential areas.
Not this time. City Streets Director Todd Waelterman tells Fox 2 News that after the plows pass by, a second crew will hit the area. "We'll go in with a two-man crew and we'll actually scoop those out and push that snow to the side to try to eliminate the extra snow we've created there," he said.
As to whether the side streets themselves will be plowed, Waelterman says he's still reviewing his department's overall policies for handling residential streets.
