Milton Plows Hit the Streets During Blizzard
Over 80 trucks have been clearing Milton streets since Friday afternoon.
As the snow has accumulated from Winter Storm Nemo it’s likely you’ve seen a few plows. According to Milton Department of Public Works Director Joe Lynch, 84 trucks are deployed during the storm.
Three plows are assigned to each of the 24 plow routes through Milton for a total of 72 trucks. Lynch said there is an additional 12 plows that are clearing parking lots.
The DPW also made arrangements for additional drivers and backup equipment to clear roads during the lengthy storm.
While Lynch has plans in place to keep drivers fed and rested, plows have been on the road through the entire storm.
“We will never shut the operation down,” Lynch said Thursday before the flurries flew.
