PennDOT lends helping hand for snow removal

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – PennDOT stepped in to help some municipalities with snow cleanup after this weekend’s record-breaking snow storm.

Unsure what to do with more than 30 inches of snow, PennDOT crews helped Harrisburg with snow removal on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Governor Tom Wolf said PennDOT crews are headed to four other municipalities across the state to assist.

PennDOT Secretary Leslie S. Richards recognized this winter storm was out of the ordinary.

PennDOT crews from Dauphin County were sent with equipment to Adams, Franklin, and Lancaster counties.

In a release, Richards said residents are mostly concerned with “getting back on the move, and we will do our best to help them do that.”

In response to the request, crews were sent out with five dump trucks, skid loaders, belt loaders, and snow blowers.

PennDOT is not looking to be reimbursed for their work from the municipalities because Richards said they are happy to help.
