Road Crews Work Overtime

Road crews in Berrien county are working around the clock to try and keep up with the snowfall.

The City of St. Joseph has had six crews out ever since the snow started to fall on Saturday night.

They've spread about 400 tons of salt in just a couple of days.

“So far we've been holding our own but it did take twelve hours to get everything open and we have about 50 miles to cover in the city,” says Derek Perry, St. Joseph director of public services.

Overall road crews are asking people to be patient as they work to stay on top of the steady snow that keeps falling.

St. Joseph was one of the cities hit the hardest.

Stevensville received about twenty four inches of snow in some parts.

Residents say it’s been a relatively mild winter until now.

“Its great to live beside Lake Michigan because it gives us cool air in the summer and warm air sometimes in the winter but it also gives us this lake effect,” says Stevensville resident Glenn Keller.

Some parts of Berrien county got up to two feet of snow depending on where the snow drifted.
