UPDATE | Youngstown road crews clearing side streets today
YOUNGSTOWN — City plows were tied up on main streets Monday night and today clearing snow to get to the side streets, said Charles Shasho, deputy director of public works.
Shasho said he understands why people are upset the side streets haven’t been done, but the city is doing everything it can to keep snow off the main streets as a priority.
“We’re not sitting around. We have every available resource on the roads,” he said today.
Meanwhile, motorists on side streets are having a difficult time driving as they haven’t been plowed in a couple of days.
Motorists across the region dealt with snow covered and slushy roads for their commute this morning.
On state Route 11 south to the state Route 711 connector, traffic moved at a normal pace as the road was there was clear. State Route 711 was clear as well.
Mahoning Avenue in Youngstown was covered in slush but traffic moved at a steady pace. Marshall Street downtown was tough going, as it was snow covered.
