Cincinnati road crews request cars be removed from narrow side streets

Vehicles preventing treatment of some streets

CINCINNATI – As the Tri-State received another dusting of snow Sunday morning, Cincinnati authorities made a simple request for residents – remove vehicles from narrow residential roadways.

Larry Whitaker, a spokesperson with the city, said road crews ran into problems getting down narrow streets the past week. Residents, he said, are parking cars further away from curbs because of ice build. This in turn is making the drivable paths on some city streets so narrow that city workers can not get plows and other equipment down streets.

In a release sent out by the city on Sunday the following request of residents was made: “We need neighbors on these streets to work together to get these vehicles moved so that crews are able to clear their street.”

Road crews continue to work 12 hour rotating shifts to treat roads and bridges.
