Scotts Bluff County plow crews make progress on county roads

Scotts Bluff County Road crews made progress clearing much of the county’s paved road system, but say more work is still ahead. Roads Superintendent Linda Grummert says because of the severity of the winter storm, only motor graders were used to clean roadways Thursday.

Grummert says unfortunately, they were not able to clear all paved roadways due to search and rescue efforts, and assistance to power companies in restoring power in some rural areas.  

Overnight winds will cause re-opening of roads Friday morning.  Trucks will be utilized on the roadways motor graders have already gone through.  

Grummert says no gravel roadways were opened on Thursday, but Friday a single pass will be made on as many gravel roadways as possible.  Widening efforts will follow over the weekend.
