Plows have been working around the clock to clear roadways and pour salt. Locally, main streets in Rockford have been plowed, however they are still slick and partly covered. Side streets are completely covered.
The City of Rockford says crews are working on arterial routes while contractors are working on the residential ones. It will take approximately 12 to 14 hours for crews to get through neighborhoods. The city says first passes will be to get streets open even if snow isn't pushed all the way to the curb. Officials say they will return to streets for a second pass.
