Omaha, NE.— For the second straight morning rush hour, traffic reports in Omaha noted plenty of accidents and slower than normal rides to work in the aftermath of the week-end snow storm.
In addition, and going forward, the city’s snow removal plan is taking longer than expected.
On Monday Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert noted on her Facebook page: “We plan to pick up snow piles in the middle of the downtown, Dodge and Maple locations beginning Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. This is a day later than first planned.”
And there is other fallout including delays in garbage pick-up.
Stothert says, “Delays from last week’s storm plus the weekend blizzard have delayed solid waste collection by nearly a full day…Report missed collection after 7:00pm the day after your regular collection day.”
