Many roads in and around Springfield are in much better shape… a day after the end of the biggest snowstorm in the city’s history.
Springfield public works crews have been working around the clock since the 18-inch-plus snowfall began early Sunday.
Public works director Mark Mahoney says the record snow gave the city a chance for a real-time test of its tracking equipment to show where plows have been… and what parts of town haven’t yet been plowed.
Main roads in the city and county are largely clear, but some side roads may still be snowpacked.
Most local schools are expected to resume classes today, and Springfield Mass Transit District buses should be back to normal operations today.
