City street crews have done a good job on the downtown streets after last week’s heavy snowfall. How much snow did they remove?
Lawrence city crews on Thursday removed approximately 9,200 cubic yards of snow, or about 7,100 tons, from downtown. Downtown — because of its parking needs — gets plowed differently from other parts of the city. The snow gets pushed to the middle of the roads, and then crews scoop it up and haul it off. The snow gets stored on city property to melt.
