BRIDGEPORT - One year ago today, a blizzard slammed into southwestern Connecticut, burying cities like Bridgeport under more than two feet of snow.

Mayor Bill Finch says the city continues to improve its plans when it comes to clearing the snow.

He says the city has added a brine truck to pre-treat the roads so that snow doesn't stick, and five small plows to clear narrow streets.

Finch says the city started an alternate side of the street parking system to allow plows to clear both sides of the street after snowstorms.

Residents who spoke with News 12 say they have seen improvements in the city’s response to snow, but there is still work to be done.

Finch says if people notice streets the city has missed after snowstorms, they can report it from their phone on the city’s B-Connected app.
