Wednesday morning closures, delays in and around Lake Oswego
Roads throughout Lake Oswego were snow-covered and slick Wednesday morning, even at the lower elevations. That's despite the efforts of the City's Public Works Department, which had all five of its trucks out plowing and sanding overnight.
"About two hours ago, it really starting snowing hard," streets supervisor Jim Bateman said shortly after 6 a.m. "People will wake up this morning and think we never came to work."
It was 28 degrees when he got to work, Bateman said, which means everything that fell stuck. But crews will continue to work the city's main arterials, he said, and hope that temperatures rise with the sun.
