Lexington Streets and Roads employees say we have had more snow and colder temperatures than in past winter seasons.

In February alone, two weeks worth of temperatures did not climb above the freezing degree mark. Averages in February range from 41-49 degrees.

Sam Williams, Dir. Lexington Streets and Roads, says, "During a typical winter, Lexington will see about 16 inches of snow...So far, we are up to near 23-24 inches for the winter."

Williams says that road crews have had a harder time this winter in particular due to lengthy periods of sub-freezing temperatures. Black ice has kept many roads slick in between snow events.

Lexington Streets and Roads department plan to keep snow plows hooked to their trucks through mid-April.
