COLUMBIA — City crews have begun plowing residential streets after completing first and second priority roadways, according to a Public Works Department statement released around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Public Works Director John Glascock said plowing went well because of light traffic on roads.
"We thank all of those folks who stayed off the roads while our plow crews, utility crews, and emergency service crews were out responding to this winter storm," Glascock said in the statement.
Assisted by Columbia Water and Light and Columbia Parks and Recreation, plow crews will continue clearing the roads "until the job is complete," the statement said.
Other Public Works employees will clear fallen trees and limbs from roadways to help plow crews.
Columbia Solid Waste and Recycling Services will resume normal service Wednesday, but collections will be delayed one day.
Columbia Transit will also resume services Wednesday, but schedules might be altered, according to the release.
More snow totaling 1 to 2 inches is likely to fall Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
