QUINCY (WGEM) - In order to make sure everyone was fresh, plow crews went home early Thursday night so they could be ready for 12-hour shifts starting at 7 p.m. on Friday, according to Central Services Director Kevin McClean.

That’s not the only prepping he said they did to get ahead of the snow storm that was predicted to drop several inches of snow from Friday to Saturday.

McClean said they would have 12 big trucks and two small trucks ready to clear city roads.

He wanted to urge drivers to avoid the roads if they can, and if they cannot, he wanted to remind them to drive slowly and be careful.

“There probably is a few spots still that are left over from last week so there could be some ice under the snow so I would just say use caution, give our guys plenty of room, be patient,” McClean said.

Meanwhile, Adams County Highway Department officials said say they had seven of their trucks with operators at their homes, while the other five were stationed at the depot all loaded and ready to go.

They said they were not sure just how long crews would be out as that would depend on how much snow comes down and how fast
