Minot is struggling to keep roads passable and it keeps snowing



Minot, ND- The snow removal crews were busy all winter while working to remove the snow, prioritizing the roadways.

New snow that fell on Thursday, really made work difficult for the city crews, as it continues to snow over the frozen icy grounds.

The officials are asking residents for patience and cooperation, as the snow removal crews are working non-stop since November 25.

“We have to stick to our plans, that’s snow routes, hills, school zones, residential then pedestrian right of ways we stick to that we’ll get to it as fast as we can. We appreciate everyone’s patience. Move your vehicle if you can off the street that will be helpful, pull your garbage cans off the streets when it’s not your collection day. Allow us to widen the road, give us more space to store the snow, and then things will be alright,” Hackett said.

Hackett thinks the removal could take up to 60 hours.
