The second snowstorm of 2014 dumped about 6 inches of light, powdery snow on Pawtucket.
â€śIt wasnâ€™t a horrible storm, but the timing was an issue,â€ť Pawtucket Public Works Director Lance Hill said Wednesday. â€śIt started just before rush hour and when you have traffic on the road packing down the snow it makes it extremely difficult to remove.â€ť
The total snow accumulation in Pawtucket was 6 inches.
Pawtucketâ€™s Public Works Department plows and sands more than 180 miles of roadway.
â€śThe big challenge for us is the intersections,â€ť Hill said. â€śWe have so many of them and it can be time consuming because you have to make sure they are passable from every approach.â€ť
