MILFORD - Public works crews in Milford are doing their best to get out ahead of the approaching snowstorm to keep more than 200 miles of roads clear of snow and ice.

Preparations started early this morning with pay loaders mixing salt and sand, then filling the city's 13 spreaders. The city plans to have as many as 25 plows out overnight and into the morning.

Milford Department of Public Works Director Bruce Kolwicz says snowstorms like the ones that have recently hit the area cost the city between $40,000 and $100,000 to clean up. Weather CenterNews 12 Traffic & Weather
