Winter Storm Recap: What Happened in Boise Last Week?

The good news is that with the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, those uncleared residential streets didn’t affect local schools since most school districts already had the day off. ACHD crews were hard at work on Sunday and cleared their priority roads, allowing them to move on to residential streets. It may take them several weeks to clear the more than 4,000 cul-de-sacs and 3,000 lanes of residential roadways in their jurisdiction, they’ll be working around the clock to clear neighborhoods prioritizing ones that are home to high numbers of populations. Residents can expect a clearer path, but not bare pavement.
