Corktown Area Still Digging Out From Snowstorm

DETROIT (WWJ) One of Detroit’s historic neighborhoods has a problem shared by many of its neighbors: unplowed streets.

The Corktown area is very well-known, and residents are fiercely proud, but rather shocked that they are still digging themselves out from big snowstorm last week.

“After the blizzard , it took them 2 and a half days to plow Trumbull , let alone side-streets,” said Corktown resident Charles Samuel, “non of these side-streets in Corktown, Woodbridge, are  plowed, at all.”

Books (no last name) from Ann Arbor was upbeat saying, “Yeah, I came in from Ann Arbor for a minute, and all the roads are plowed there, but they are not really plowed in Detroit.”

Books was caught in the snow on the side-streets no less than four times in during her quick trip into Detroit.
