The following is a verbatim statement issued Saturday morning from the Fort Wayne Street Department:
Fort Wayne, Ind. – A busy night for the Fort Wayne Street Department continues this morning, as crews plow and salt throughout the City.
At this hour crews remain on Priority One streets, the main arterials. When snow continues to fall crews stay on these streets to keep them as passable as possible for emergency vehicles.
A steady snow began to fall last night around 10 o'clock and crews were dispatched to the 18 snow routes around the City. Crews have been plowing the Priority One streets and salting their intersections.
Yesterday, crews prepared for the storm by converting trucks that were equipped for leaf collection by mounting plowing and salting equipment to the trucks.
