Quincy crews will plow overnight Saturday

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

The message from Quincy Central Services is still the same, if you don’t have to go out, don’t go out.

Central Services officials said they will have crews out all night and into Sunday morning as the snow continues to come down.

Saturday night, they have 12 plows out along with a smaller truck to get into tighter spaces.

Officials said the continual snowfall has made it hard to keep the roads clear.

“It’s been real hard. The guys are doing the best they can. It just seems like once they go over it and turn around, it’s right back. So it’s been a little frustrating for them and they’re all ready to come back in the morning,” said Quincy Central Services director Kevin McClean.

Central Services will have crews out all day Sunday and Sunday night into Monday.

Meanwhile, plenty of drivers braved the weather conditions despite warnings to stay home.

Drivers said there are some slick spots even on main roads which they say are typically easier to drive on than the side streets.

Some drivers said the biggest thing they’re trying to do is take it slow.

“If you go down some side rows, they’re a little slicky and the driveways of course if you haven’t cleaned them up they’re bad,” said Junior Mena.

“Give yourself plenty of time,” said Lance Smith. “Make sure you have the necessities. We got extra blankets in the van just in case and all that stuff. We were prepared for this.”

Again, the message from officials is stay home because it is still dangerous out on these roads.
