I first ventured out Tuesday and again on Wednesday, The roads that I use were all clear to the black top with a few scattered exception by Wednesday.
However, many had places that were only wide enough for 2 ½ cars the reason being the snowed in parked cars that the plow had to avoid. Leland Ave in spots and North Plainfield Mountain Ave.
There was adequate warning about the storm and parking on the street could have been prohibited especially on main travel roads.
The other hazard of high pile embankments at street corner that completely obstructed the drivers view should have been eliminated by the second day using front end loaders. Again the Leland Ave. /Mountain Ave intersection on Wednesday was still a bad example of a hazard.
This also should apply to the exits from store parking lots and bank driveways where exiting blindly into the street is a great adventure.
While Plainfield could have been better on the whole Public Works did a good job. The announcements on the City Site could have been printed out instead of having to download and then open. That may have been a quirk of my computer.
