Rawlins crews fight to stay on top of snow removal

For city street crews in Rawlins, the new year began the same way 2019 ended — battling Mother Nature to clear roadways. Blizzard conditions on New Year’s Day complicated their efforts.

High winds caused drifting snow, stranding vehicles at times. Snow removal efforts are scheduled to continue through the rest of this week and into next. Cali O’Hare spoke with officials about the ongoing operation and filed this report.
