Fairfield still digging out

Fairfield continues to dig out from 35 inches of snow fall — the most in Fairfield County and one of the worst single snowstorms in our history.

The Department of Public Works has cleared a single lane on every road in town. That is more than 270 miles of road. Today’s goal is to work towards getting two lanes cleared and getting snow removed from cul-de-sac turn-arounds. The town is projecting to have 60% of these objectives met by the end of the today. The town anticipates having 100% of these objectives met by end of day on Tuesday. Residents should know that as crews clear a second lane on roadways, driveways may
again be snowed in.

State roads and highways are the responsibility of the state DOT, but in a few dangerous cases, Fairfield’s DPW crews are helping out.

Clearing downtown parking will be the next objective after we meet the public safety need
of having access to all our roads.

Schools are closed Monday and Tuesday. Crews will begin cleaning school parking lots overnight and will their best to have roads “bus ready” for Wednesday morning. The town is still concerned about whether sidewalks will be cleared and also whether there will be cleared spaces for bus stops for students.

If you have questions or need assistance, call  the call center at 203-254-4899. As always, call 911 for life threatening emergencies.
