 Following several hours of intense strategic planning for the storm predicted to arrive in Northeastern Pennsylvania, PennDOT Engineering District 4-0 proactively requested a mobile team to supplement its efforts on Interstate 84 in Pike and Wayne counties.
Teams from Mercer and Erie Counties will provide a total of six trucks with plows, a snow blower, 12 operators and two foremen. All, with the exception of the snowblower, will be positioned along I-84 to be ready for whatever the weather could bring. The snowblower will be assigned to the Dunmore stockpile, a strategic location from which it can be relocated easily as needed.
The crew will be deployed from noon Thursday to noon Friday and will focus on snow removal.
The Wednesday planning sessions included a review of county maintenance resources, including personnel, equipment, fuel, material and budget. All possible scenarios were discussed in order to plan a proactive response to the weather.
