City crews are done with half-assed plowing of major streets, about ready to start mediocre plowing in YOUR neighborhoodFebruary 22, 2013 – 5:37 am | by Billy Dennis
I’ve spent most of the night’s snowstorm on the city’s chronically neglected South Side, so maybe I don’t have a good grasp of the work done elsewhere in the city yet. I know that Western if pretty well covered in snow. So is U.S. Route 24, at least until the road reaches Bartonville, then it miraculously gets better. Anyway, here’s a City of Peoria update:
Primary streets were plowed and treated with salt over night. Pavement conditions are reported as partly snow covered, slushy and will improve with an increase in traffic. At this time traffic is moving at below normal speed. Please drive with caution during the morning rush. City plows are expected to move into residential areas before
So that’s how the city of Peoria “plows” it’s roads. It lets people smoosh the snow into frozen ice with the tires of their cars. In other cities, drivers wake up able to get in their cars after a snowstorm and drive on plowed roads. Not Peoria. But we do finance baseball parks.
Oh, and I bet the downtown streets and sidewalks will be immaculate. That way attorneys on their way to court and Caterpillar executives won’t get the hem of their pants even slightly mushy
