As a result, one of the trucks became stuck in the snow.
On Monday, wind continued to be a problem for plows, but Staske said the daylight conditions were helping crews — which had been out since 5 a.m. — make progress.
“The drifting is significant and wind has been a problem,” he said. “We’re trying to get the drifts plowed away to get each road open.”
He said county trucks would continue working on the roads throughout Monday and decide in the evening whether to pull drivers in for the night.
“If the wind continues to blow, we don’t want to have drivers out in the dark with blizzard conditions,” he said.
Bob Scott, services and operations manager for Danville Public Works, said arterial and residential areas throughout the city were looking good Monday, receiving at least two passes each.
“It’s snow-packed but navigable if you’re cautious,” he said, adding some streets had a slight glaze as a result of mist that fell before turning to snow.
With the single-digit and negative temperatures, Scott said the city did not have any materials that would work on the glaze. Once temperatures begin to rise — 25 degrees is forecast by Wednesday — the city would begin to deal with the glaze.
The City of Danville issued a winter emergency Saturday night and were on the streets around the clock until 7 p.m. Monday. City trucks spent most of Sunday working Danville’s main traffic arteries before moving into residential areas Sunday night.
