City to Target Large Snow Piles on Roadways

"Snow strike teams" will launch on Monday to remove large piles of snow from roadways and intersections.

Days after the blizzard of 2013, most streets have been cleared and conditions for motorists are improving.

But huge snow piles are shrinking travel lanes, clogging intersections and making parking impossible in Boston.

The city announced Monday that it will launch a coordinated “snow strike teams” to remove the massive piles of plowed snow. 

These teams include police officers and employees form the city’s transportation, public works, and neighborhood services departments. 

Officials said the teams headed out Monday with orange spray paint to demark which snow piles will be removed by larger machinery. The city noted some roads may need to close during the process but it has not announced which roads will be targeted. 

The snow will be transported to empty lots officials have designated "snow farms."

Work is expected to continue through Tuesday.
