Avon Department of Public Works employees will spend Sunday "widening" the travel lanes so two vehicles can pass through and "improving sightlines" in the aftermath of the recent blizzard, according to a press release from town officials.
The winter storm dumped at least 24 inches on Avon, town officials said, though some residents reported on Patch that they measured as much as 30 inches near their homes.
The road clearing process will take some time, town officials said in the release, and asked residents for patience as Public Works staff works all day and into the evening to open up the roads.
Town officials also asked residents not to move snow from their properties into the roadways. There is a town ordinance against it with a penalty of a fine.
"It is understandably frustrating when your driveway apron is refilled with snow by a passing plow truck, but this is, unfortunately, unavoidable, as the drivers work to reopen roadways as efficiently as possible," the press release stated.
Plow drivers worked overnight Friday and all day Saturday to ensure all "major local roadways" were passable in one lane for emergency vehicles, the release stated.
Rain is in the forecast, town officials said, so residents "are encouraged to clear downspouts so that water can flow away from homes," the release said.
The Avon Volunteer Fire Department also asks residents to make sure the heating system vents outside their homes aren't blocked by snow, as that could cause carbon monoxide build-up.
