Clean Up Underway After First Significant Snowfall

Clean Up Underway After First Significant Snowfall

Folks across the region are cleaning up after this weekend's first big snowfall.
STATE COLLEGE, CENTRE COUNTY - Clean up is underway Sunday after the weekend's snowfall buried much of the region.

"It's a little bit of hard work to get your sidewalks clear," State College resident, Larry York, said.

York and his wife are hard at work digging out of their driveway Sunday.

"I like how it looks," York said. "Glad they can clean the roads up quick."

Jeff Collins, PennDOT Assistant County Maintenance Manager, tackled this weekend's storm head on.

"When I left at 7:30 Saturday night, Aaronsburg already had nine inches and Philipsburg had around four," he said.

He says the biggest problem this weekend was slick roads on State Route 350 between Bald Eagle and Philipsburg and Route 322 near Seven Mountains.

"We have difficulty with tractor trailers that aren't loaded, maybe don't have winter tires on," Collins said.

But he says overall, the weekend wasn't too bad.

"Right now, our roads are fairly clear. They're wet, so there may be a few slick spots out there, but the roads are well treated and the traffic will help break up anything that's out there," Collins said.

PennDOT says crews will continue monitoring road conditions across the region Sunday night, but don't anticipate any major issues for Monday's commute.
