City makes plan for uneven roads after plowing

Some routes are clear of snow in Erie, but some are still packed with bumps and ruts.  Residents describe the uneven roads like driving across potholes.  

The compacted snow and ice could not be removed with plows, alone.  But now, the city of Erie is doing something about it. 

Mayor Joe Schember says graders are making their way through streets, scraping up the snow.  "The city's grader actually malfunctioned. So, we've rented a couple of graders. And graders you don't need very often. We can often get through an entire winter without a grader. So, it makes a lot of sense to rent one when you need it."

Schember says piles of snow are reducing visibility on some streets. He warns drivers to use caution when approaching and entering intersections.
