WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Trumbull County road crews have been out since 9 a.m. Sunday working to clear streets, according to County Engineer Gregg Alberini.
The county has employed 27 truck drivers, who are placing salt and anti-skid mix on the road, a mixture that will help with the freezing rain.
Alberini said there will be seven workers on the streets from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. to maintain the work that crews did Sunday. At 3 a.m., the full crew of 27 will return.
In Mahoning County, roads have become icy, and the engineer’s office is deploying 21 trucks who are applying a new anti-skid mix to the streets. Those crews have been out since 6 a.m., according to Mahoning Co. Engineer Pat Ginnetti.
Mahoning County’s plan for snow removal will be determined by the amount of snowfall Sunday night.
“Just these past few days, the crews have been putting in a lot of hours,” Ginnetti said. “So we’re trying to give them as much rest as we can in between. And it’s going to depend tonight on how much snow comes down, as to how long they’re going to be out.”
As of about 6:30 p.m., Ginnetti said trucks were back out treating the roads.
