Graders working residential streets

The city’s street grader crew began clearing residential streets this morning and are working in the Eagle Ridge neighborhood on the south side and Indian Trail on the north.

Public Works Director Dave Mandyke said those streets were chosen first because they are hilly.

The city has 10 graders that will work almost exclusively in residential streets, Mandyke said.

That’s, in part, because they’re much slower than plows, which are needed for arterials. Five contracted graders were expected to start work by this evening.

“We’re going to have a strong presence in the residentials,” Mandyke said.

The city’s residential clearing effort has started much earlier than during last winter’s major storm. The city typically wait to clear neighborhoods until it’s done with main routes.
