City street crews continue full-time snow removal efforts
Casper, Wyo. (Press release) - Consecutive snow storms have kept City of Casper snow removal crews working continually throughout January and forcing crews to repeatedly plow main and high-traffic streets before addressing secondary streets windrows from earlier storms. “We apologize to our community for the inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience as we work around the clock to clear streets,” Streets and Traffic Manager Shad Rodgers said.
All 13 plow trucks, along with support from other City departments, work in 24-hour shifts to plow main streets and 16-hour shifts to clear windrows from center lanes. Once these streets are finished, crews will begin working on secondary streets. However, if there’s another snowfall, crews will have to divert attention back to primary streets. “We haven’t stopped our removal efforts at any point all month, but Mother Nature has outmanned us this January,” Rodgers said. Casper has had its highest snow volume in more than 15 years.
