Albuquerque officials give update on road operations

City of Albuquerque crews have been working non-stop to get roads cleared and they’re not done yet.

The city says its job is far from over along with the possibility of wet roads re-freezing overnight.

Officials gathered Wednesday to give an update on road operations for the storm.

Mayor Tim Keller spent the morning riding around in one of the 33 city plows on the road.

The city starts with main streets such as Louisiana and Eubank, then the smaller busier roads before tackling neighborhood streets.

As for the local office for the Department of Transportation, 50 workers are pulling 12-hour shifts tackling the interstates and state highways.

They have plenty of trucks and road treatment to go around but they are ordering more for the next expected storm.

NMDOT is also sending those trucks onto the roads so that they’ll be safer when they do reopen.

Calls to Bernalillo County regarding the status of their operations have not yet been returned.
