According to local officials, all Cheshire roads are now cleared to some extent. Some roads might not cleared from curb to curb, but there is clearance for at least one vehicle.
Town crews will continue to clear streets and intersections today and through the rest of the week. It's important to clear the storm drains, as rain and melting snow can lead to significant flooding if the drains remained blocked.
The following was posted by Cheshire Town Hall:
All Town roads are now passable. Crews will begin curb-to-curb cleanup. Storm drains must be cleared, especially with the rain and the warmer temperatures that will be melting snow. Roads must be widened so that there will be room for plows to push the additional snow that is forecasted. And roads must be made wide enough for two lane traffic for the safety of motorists, school buses and emergency vehicles. We apologize for the inconvenience to homeowners since this will push more snow into the ends of driveways, but it is necessary for public safety.
Town offices are closed tomorrow in recognition of Lincoln's Birthday, but Town Public Works crews will continue to work to complete the storm cleanup. In addition, contractors are supplementing Town crews to clear intersections to accommodate traffic safely and improve sight lines.
Residents are reminded to please not blow or plow snow back into the roads; it can freeze and create dangerous conditions.
The parking ban is still in effect until further notice.
