Rollback on Lancaster County roads after dangerous conditions Thursday morning
LINCOLN, Nebraska (Nebraska). Lancaster County engineers sent plows back onto county roads after visibility problems forced them to withdraw the equipment back to their garages on Thursday morning.
Pam Dingman, district engineer, said the snowstorm and near-white weather are making it hard for their employees and making it difficult to keep the roads clean.
“It’s an incredible amount of snow,” Dingman said.
She said they have some snow issues causing maintenance issues but nothing out of the ordinary. Their plan is to work until dark Thursday and return on Friday morning to keep the roads as clean as possible. They only have staff for one shift and Dingman said night work is too dangerous.

“When you go out into the county and you run into visibility issues, you need to know where the road is,” Dingman said.
Dingman said if drivers don’t have to go out, stay at home and stay off the roads, and if driving, stay 100 feet away from snow crews.
“We want everyone to be safe,” Dingman said. “We’ll just do our best.”
Drivers are strongly advised to stay 100 feet away from Lancaster County Engineering snowplows.
