Dept. of Sanitation facing obstacles clearing snow

With more than 50 inches of snow covering The Bronx so far this winter, Department of Sanitation workers are having a difficult time getting rid

THE BRONX - With more than 50 inches of snow covering The Bronx so far this winter, Department of Sanitation workers are having a difficult time getting rid of it.

Officials say they are working to clear the mounds of snow piling up near the curbs, but residents say it is getting pushed into the middle of the street, creating a driving hazard.

The Department of Sanitation released a statement saying that it is taking advantage of the warmer temperatures to smash large pieces of snow, which is resulting in ice being pushed into the street. It says salt spreaders will be heading out to lay down salt in those areas.
