Summit's Department of Public Works has been working through the night to clear the city's streets, Amy Cairns, the City of Summit's communications specialist said.

The DPW, responsible for snow and ice control on 80 miles of Summit streets, has had crews operating in two, 12-hour shifts between Thursday evening and Friday morning to make roads passable. 

The DPW is asking residents not to park cars in streets as it interferes with plowing roadways; drifting snow is making it difficult as well, said Cairns.

Workers got a jump on the storm Thursday morning brining streets with a water/salt solution to help delay the sticking of falling snow and facilitate plowing.
