Some Toledo streets may not be cleared for days

Posted: Updated:

The plows for the City of Toledo are out in full force, but some streets might not be cleared for a few days.

And that has residents who've been waiting to see the plows since last Wednesday's snow, concerned.

Tom Oppold has cleared his sidewalks and his neighbors sidewalks. But he hasn't seen a plow from the city. "We have been waiting probably three or four days for sure."

Roads like Central Avenue are the first to get plowed, but less-trafficked residential roads like Middlesex in  the Old Orchard neighborhood are among the last.

That's because plowing is determined by traffic. Roads with the most traffic are cleared first, followed by streets with more than 2500 cars per day. Then side streets that lead to main roads. Residential roads are the lat to be plowed.

The city says 115 snow plows are out in Toledo, but it could be up to four days before residential streets are cleared.
