( KTUU - TV ) Fri, 10 Mar 2017 07:05:26 +0000 Snow hauling in Anchorage ( KTUU - TV ) KTUU noticed less snow on the roads and more in the city's snow dumps. channels 2's cameron mackintosh spoke with state and local transportation officials today... and cameron just how much snow has been hauled so far? caslon the department of transportation says it just finished hauling snow on wednesday while the municipality workers are still at it. together they've hauled close to 900 thousand cubic yards of snow so far this winter. nats bulldozer on snowpile snow dumps across anchorage are getting bigger... they're kind of impressive once you see those big mounds of snow several days of clear skies and sunny weather have given maintenance crews a chance to catch up on snow hauling. they've had their work cut out for them following a string of winter storms earlier this year. we were able to get to all our routes and actually elmore was the last one we did which was just yesterday. the department of transportation says so far it's hauled more than 120 thousand cubic yards of snow - about 5 thousand truck loads. meanwhile the municipality's tally is coming in at about 750 thousand cubic yards or 38 thousand truck loads - and counting. it was really a big deal since the last three years we've had light snowfalls particularly the last two. we've had very little snow in the last two years so i think it was for all of us just reminding us where we live. while that might seem like a lot, state and local officials say its pretty much average for anchorage. but what made this winter most challenging was not the amount of snow, but how suddenly it all came down. because the storms were back to back to back we were actually a little bit delayed with out snow haul so when we finally got started we were basically around the clock. we were doing the snow haul at night and plowing during the day. and while it may look like spring is right around the corner, we're not out of the woods just yet. transportation officials expect to be hauling snow for at least a few more weeks. we anticipate there's going to be some more. but this stretch of cold and clear has been really beneficial for us to get caught up d-o-t says they will be doing additional clearing on state routes in the next few weeks until break up. and of course if there is more snowfall they'll re-start hauling operations. caslon? no snow
