Lincoln Public Works crews have been working round the clock to clear ice and snow.
It took about 60 Public Works crews to combat the ice and snow, and now, it's smooth sailing for Lincoln's main roads.
"The arterials are great. I'm surprised they're as cleared of as they are. They look great, easy to maneuver on," Lincoln driver Coleen Pegler said.
And the hard work hasn't let up. Around 8 Friday morning, Public Works started hitting the residentials... Where parking is banned on the even–numbered side of the street... But still, residents say they're not hard to work around.
"If you go slow and take your time, there's no problem driving. Even on the side streets which may or may not have been plowed. All you have to do is go slow," Lincoln driver Denise Korinek said.
That's a message Lincoln police want residents to remember. Even though citizens did a great job of staying off the roads, there are still some slick patches out there. Lincoln police reported 35 accidents yesterday, and as of 3:30 today, there had been 14.
"Citizens are doing a very good job of slowing down, being courteous, and looking out for the other drivers. I think today would be a great day to pay it forward," Chief Jim Peschong said.
All in all, Lincoln drivers say Public Works really did things right.
"I understand we might get some snow this weekend, a little bit more. So Public Works, schedule us in."
AGAIN, THAT RESIDENTIAL PARKING BAN CHANGE WILL TAKE EFFECT AT 8 A–M TOMORROW.. SO STAY OFF THE EVEN SIDE UNTIL THEN.. AND THEN IT SWITCHES TO THE ODD SIDE..
