With the snowstorm wrapped up, City of Akron crews are in the process of cleaning up the streets and preparing for the next winter blast whenever it arrives.
Akron Public Works Manager Paul Barnett tells AkronNewsNow.com that his road crews did "okay" for first major snow this winter.
"There's always room for improvement, we always look at what worked, what didn't work and ways to improve our service," he said.
Barnett says one thing they have to deal with this year, is a number of new drivers out there who are new to the routes and learning how to plow snow.
He says the main routes are 100% driveable as of tonight, and they hope to finish up Akron's secondary roads by Friday afternoon.
Barnett says crews have been working on residential streets and should be done plowing them out by Friday afternoon.
He says that now that the storm is over, mechanics will be working on the plow trucks to repair them and get them prepared for the rest of the winter.
"Equipment failures are normal after the first significant snowfall," Barnett said.
"You're going to have to do a lot of welding on those trucks , we're going to have to replace a lot of parts on them to avoid any other failure."
