WESTFIELD, NJ — After an historic snowstorm, Westfield Director of Public Works Greg O’Neil expects all of the town’s roads to be plowed by Sunday evening.
“At this point in time, we’ve opened up all of the main roads, most of the secondary roads and we’re working on a good number of the tertiary roads,” he said at about 10 a.m. Sunday.
Westfield got about 24 inches of snow in the blizzard that lasted from Friday night until Saturday night, according to the National Weather Service.
“The snow and ice made a problem for our trucks and getting them to move,” O'Neil said. “It’s a lot of heavy snow and it came at a tremendous rate — faster than I’ve ever seen in my 31 years doing this.”
He asked residents to please be patient.
"We’ll keep working at it until we get it all done,” O'Neil said.
