RESPONSE TO COMPLAINTS ABOUT ROAD CONDITIONS

  

I have seen your complaints regarding the recent snow storm and I'm sorry for all those who have had so much trouble with it, although we are not alone.  All towns in the northeast had pretty much the same problem as we did and PennDot was equally challenged trying keep roads clear as was evident by the condition of our Main and Dundaff Streets.

This was a difficult storm to manage due to the combination of heavy wet snow, rain, and very cold temperatures freezing the snow solidly in place. To add to the problem, our main plow truck was down due to a problem with the plow. Unfortunately our new truck which we expected in the late fall did not arrive until after the storm. We did have a contractor assisting us with plowing though he was unable to apply anti skid.

There have also been questions about our plowing methods; typically we open roads to make them passable then come back and widen the roads curb to curb. During the first pass we may or may not apply anti skid, this is due to the temperatures and how fast the snow is falling. 

In very low temperatures it takes some time for the salt to start melting the snow and it makes no sense to make another plowing pass and push the anti skid off the road before it has started to work. Penn Dot is often seen spreading anti skid on every pass but their situation is a little different. They have many miles to plow and it is usually quite some time before they are able to come back for a second pass. There is also the added benefit that because they are "main" roads, the traffic volume also helps to start melting the snow.   Everyone's patience is truly appreciated.

Regards,
Bernie Scalzo
