Snow plows start hitting residential streets

It's expected that cleanup of downtown Vernon will occur overnight Tuesday and Wednesday.

With the snow finally stopped, road crews across the North Okanagan are stepping up action.

In the City of Vernon, main roads have been cleared and crews are now moving into residential neighbourhoods.

James Rice, public works manager, says it will be a busy couple of days for his crews as they move from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.

“The roads will be narrow because of the amount of snow.”

It’s expected that cleanup of downtown Vernon will occur overnight Tuesday and Wednesday.

“We hope to re-establish the parking areas,” said Rice.
