DPW Commissioner Joseph "Bud" Nicolleti says the season has been brutal on the crews who have to forge ahead during long shifts, with little relief between storms.

Crews plan to work 12-hour shifts once snow begins.

"It's going to occur right during the rush hour peak," said Nicolleti. "We will be plowing all night and into the morning."

Snow is expected to arrive Sunday night. Anywhere between 3 to 6 inches of snow is expected, with higher accumulations south of I-84. The storm is expected to clear out by Monday.
