Drivers reporting many neighborhood streets still snow-covered

OREGON, Ohio (WTVG) - It's been a few days since significant snow blanketed area roads. Now, many of the main roads are all clear, but some side streets and neighborhood streets remain covered.

13abc received complaints from drivers from around northwest Ohio, including from Point Place, Lake Township, Springfield Township, Fostoria, Toledo and Oregon.

Road crews in Oregon say they have those neighborhood streets on their radar. Marty Zeller says part of the problem was the timing of that snowfall.

"It snowed over the holiday weekend. So a lot of people had guests over, and so there were lots of cars parked along the streets of these subdivisions, and there was no way we would get through to plow curb-to-curb," Zeller explained.

He says that plow crews were out, starting at 1:00 PM Christmas Eve, and worked through 9:00 Pm Christmas Day.

With all main roads cleared, Zeller says that the focus now is on the neighborhoods.

"The snow is packed down on those streets, so they are passable. But we're working to salt the intersections at the access points of the subdivisions."
