Slideshow: Fridley Stays on the Go in the Snow
A photographic stock-taking of snow-moving and moving in snow, at what feels like midwinter.
We're used to it now. As Monday turned to Tuesday, more snow came, quickly slickening roads. A semi ran into a snowbank on the westbound entrance to I-694 from East River Road, leaking diesel that took MnDOT half the night to mop up, according to State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske. Fridley police responded to six accidents Tuesday that caused damage but no injuries "That’s quite a few!" said Lt. Mike Monsrud by email. Wednesday could bring more of the white stuff that Fridley Public Works Streets Supervisor Jeff Jensen said has cost the city as much as $31,000 to plow when it falls on a weekend, requiring overtime pay. That keeps Fridley moving, whether on foot or rails, two wheels or more.
