LA CROSSE, WI (WKBT) -

La Crosse city crews were out for the first plowable snow of the season on Sunday.

The plows and salt trucks hit the streets starting at about two in the morning. It took until mid afternoon to finish clearing all 225 miles of city streets.

With more snow possible in the forecast, the director of public works wants to remind people to drive extra safely around those trucks.

"Similar to a bus or the like, you don't want to be cutting in front of a plow. You want to give that plow and the team, and generally in a residential area it is a team, it's generally a grater followed by a truck," said Dale Hexom.

Hexom recommends at least 75 feet between your car and the plows.
