Grade the Town of Milton’s Response to the Recent Snowstorm

Was your neighborhood cleared well after the weekend snowfall?

The Town of Milton received 28 inches of snow on Friday and Saturday. While snow closed down much of the town on February 8, school was still canceled on Monday, February 11.

The Milton Department of Public Works was planning for Winter Storm Nemo for several days prior to the storm. According to DPW Director Joe Lynch, 84 trucks were used to plow town roads and parking lots, both during and after the snow stopped falling.

What did the roads looks like in your neighborhood? What grade would you give the DPW for its response to the storm? Tell us in the comments.

disappointed that there is difficult driving on Adams Street. Thought it would have been plowed a little better

Great job handling the storm. Kudos to all that helped out. Roads here are super compared to Dorchester.

Well I thought the town did a good job on my street (Brook Rd). HOWEVER, we did our driveway & sidewalk. The town sent a truck thru last night and buried our driveway back in. I do understand that they need to move as much snow of the street as possible but I don't think it was fair to bury a driveway back in, especially on a Sunday night. If I had not been out, I would not have realized it and been in trouble this morning when going out to work. And, what about the folks who paid someone to come on Saturday and do their property only to be plowed in again. I did see a bobcat driving around. I think it would have only been fair for the bobcat to clear the driveways that were already done.

Great job given how much snow we received! Not perfect but I don't expect perfection under these conditions.

Pretty poor overall. Noticed several streets just west of the Expressway were unplowed late Saturday night after the storm. We had one truck circling our street several times but the guy kept plowing all of the snow to one side (luckily not mine) even though he made two passes each time (should have been able to plow th snow to each side). There were no trucks out (that I saw) in the evening hours of Saturday and that is fine if the drivers are getting rest after 24 hours of plowing but I did expect to see them come around again later that night or early Sunday to clear more and never did. I guess I have higher expectations based on growing up in a snowier region and with our much higher tax bill from one year to the next.

No major complaints about the snow clean up but I was infuriated by one of the truck drivers. I was walking through the crosswalk on Central Ave by Turners Pond on Saturday holding my two young daughters and the driver of one of the DPW trucks looked right at me and blew right on through the crosswalk almost hitting us. Because I was holding my girls I couldn't take a picture of the license plate. What an #$%hole though. Seriously! Putting people's lives at risk because you're too lazy to slow down?? Incredible.

How about some snow removal. The plowing was just as bad as every other storm. Can't wait to see Milton Times this week explaining how the snow budget is gone. Milton DPW is a Joke !
