Another snowy January day ends in the Bronx

The six inches of snow on the ground gave kids the day off from school Wednesday, but many parents still had to work.

Sanitation workers in the Bronx spent the day removing snow from area roads. At the Department of Sanitation building in the Bronx, empty salt trucks arrived and were quickly reloaded to continue clearing the streets.

The highways in the Bronx are cleared down to the blacktop, but some of the side streets may still be slippery. The Sanitation Department will continue clearing the roads.

Metro North operated on a Sunday schedule Wednesday due to 50% decline in ridership. Trains were added to the evening rush hour to accommodate those trying to get home. Metro North will return to a normal rush hour schedule on Thursday morning.

The Transit Authority is running de-icing trains to make sure lines stay clear, and buses may still have some minor delays.

With the cleanup from the latest storm almost complete, a reminder to Bronx residents that home owners and shop owners are responsible for clearing the sidewalks on their property.
