When asked about the City of Bridgeport's website, which features a list of passable roads, Public Works Director Bruce Kolwicz said, "It's impossible to tell which streets have been completed," adding, "It's virtually impossible to tell street by street. I find it next to impossible."
What's the Priority List?
Answering a questions about the City's priority list, Kolwicz noted that the City plows "main roads first, then tertiary roads." Kolwicz did not get into specifics about which roads had been plowed and what the priority list is for the rest of the day.
Kolwicz noted that with the three-feet of snow, Public Works had to switch to pay loaders. "By no means was this easy," Kolwicz said.
A Public Works employee has been at the phone since the storm began, Kolwicz added.
How Many Streets Are Clear?
Mayor Blake noted that 820 streets, of the City's 1,100-1,200 streets, have been cleared, approximately 75% of the total streets.
When Will All of the Streets Be Clear?
Mayor Blake noted that the goal is that "by day's end, all streets are cleared."
