The second snowstorm of 2014 dumped about 6 inches of light, powdery snow on Pawtucket.
âIt wasnât a horrible storm, but the timing was an issue,â Pawtucket Public Works Director Lance Hill said Wednesday. âIt 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
The total snow accumulation in Pawtucket was 6 inches.
Pawtucketâs Public Works Department plows and sands more than 180 miles of roadway.
âThe big challenge for us is the intersections,â Hill said. âWe have so many of them and it can be time consuming because you have to make sure they are passable from every approach.â
