Road Clearing Continues After Snowfall

DETROIT (WWJ) The snow has moved out of Metro Detroit and now the clean up begins. 

Craig Bryson, with the Road Commission for Oakland County, telling us the first road crews hit the freeways just after midnight and that the trucks are putting down liquid brine, which is an anti-icing mixture.

“It’s going to take a while to clean things up, we are tandem plowing on the freeways, we have two or three trucks lined up abreast on the freeways, and that really helps to quickly clear up the freeways, but the secondary roads it will be a while until we get those cleaned up.”

Some snow total from the surrounding metro Detroit area, from the early morning storm include more than four inches in Richmond, about three inches in Pinckney and Pontiac, and two-inches in Grosse Ile, Eastpoint, Novi and Ann Arbor.  

Saginaw reports a 24-hour storm total of more than six inches.
