PUBLIC WORKS CREWS GET READY FOR NEXT SNOWSTORM

(PITTSBURGH) Feb. 15, 2009 - City Public Works Crews will be working 12-hour shifts today and tomorrow gearing up for the next winter weather storm which calls for four to eight inches of snow from noon today to 6 p.m. tomorrow.

DPW crews will have all 53 pieces of equipment out on the roads, plowing and salting streets, beginning with the most traveled roads known as primary streets.

“We have the equipment and the manpower to deal with this next storm,” DPW Director Rob Kaczorowski said.

The City’s 311 response line will operate on its regular hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., but with additional staff to process the still above normal call volume. Many residents are calling today requesting snow piles be removed for residential and business district streets.

“We are using all of our resources to battle this next snow event,” Kaczorowski said. “After this storm, we will remove the piles of snow in business districts and residential streets.”
