Green Bay road crews keep gutters from flooding

Green Bay road crews spent all day Friday scraping snow and ice off area roads.

Green Bay, Wis.(WFRV)- Green Bay City workers spent Friday morning and afternoon trying to prevent any possibility of flooding from the recent thaw and thunderstorm.

Crews attempted to scrape away ice and snow to keep sewer grates from clogging. They also brought in a steam unit to help melt it all away.

Green Bay Street Supervisor Tony Fietzer says their efforts paid off.

"We did have some thunder last night and ran but we didn't have too many major issues with the efforts our staff put in." said Fietzer. "The water did drain off quite well."

Earlier today a water main break had crews busy this morning near the corner of Mason and Schwartz streets. Mud and water flooded the street's gutters. Traffic had to be diverted and about 20 homes were affected.
