Fargo Public Works crews don't expect to start plowing residential roads until 7 a.m. Tuesday. Plow drivers are working 12 hour shifts tonight to get primary and secondary roads clear by morning.
They don't expect the whole city of Fargo to be plowed out until Tuesday afternoon. Because of the clean up to come, many schools and businesses are delayed.
Fargo Public Works will be out in full force all night fighting to clear streets in the metro area.
The fleet of plows will be out starting at 7:00 p.m. to accompany several sanders spreading salt.
The efforts started early Monday morning through the afternoon with trucks spraying special liquids on the roads to keep the falling sleet from bonding with the pavement.
The chemical will help to remove the ice from city roads while plowing, but Public Works says streets are still very slippery.
The street supervisor says if you will be driving in town, be sure to "drive with care."
