More snow and colder temperatures may be on their way next week. Bethel First Selectman Matt Knickerbocker is happy that the huge piles of snow in Bethel have been removed. The highway department had to pull several overnight shifts to get the work done though.
Knickerbocker says almost all of Greenwood Avenue, Main Street, PT Barnum Square and parking lots were cleared. The snowbanks were cut down along the intersections to give better lines of sight.
Knickerbocker recalls some of the difficulty that everyone felt this past week. The snow was encroaching on the parking spaces along the street so it seemed the roads were getting narrower as people were parking further into the driving lanes.
Shop owners had expressed frustrations as well with snow, in some cases, blocking parking spots.
