Digging Out Will Be Long Process

Last updated on Thursday, December 27, 2012

(INDIANAPOLIS) - Digging out from the Blizzard of 2012 will be a difficult task for central Indiana residents, with snowfall totals ranging from 6 to 12 inches in some areas.

Road crews were out in full force to face the storm, but it was an uphill battle and it will take some time for residential streets to be cleared.

With forecast highs to stay below freezing in the coming days, Mother Nature isn't helping much.

No matter how hard crews try, there are always complaints.

The Indianapolis Department of Public Works said it will do whatever is needed to get the streets cleared. But Lesley Malone, DPW public information officer says some hills and elevated roadways may still be slick.

Private contractors began plowing secondary streets Wednesday evening.

Many residents faced prospects of clearing their driveways to have the end of them covered again when the plow truck comes through.

About 350 pieces of equipment were being used to clean neighborhoods.
