City road crews began working on streets at 11 p.m. Wednesday getting ready for motorists on Thursday morning.
At 11:30 Thursday morning, crews were still out work. "We probably have half of the Mexico residential area done and all the snow routes have been gone over," said Kevin Barker, street superintendent for the city. "We still have the airport to do and some other areas. We hope to be finished by 7 p.m. (Thursday). That is our goal," Barker said.
