Columbia Public Works is hopeful that all residential streets will be plowed to a passable state by Friday evening.
A 70-person snow response crew has been on-duty since 7 o’clock last night: they’re currently using dump trucks to haul snow out of downtown Columbia, and crews have been plowing residential neighborhoods.
Public Works is urging you to drive well below the speed limit, if you have to drive this morning.
As they also continue to focus on residential streets, they note their work has been impacted by single-digit temperatures. Crews have to physically plow the snow in many cases.
The National Weather Service (NWS) in St. Louis tells 939 the Eagle that 9.9 inches of snow fell in Columbia during the storm, which began late Tuesday night with frozen precipitation.
