CLEVELAND — After yesterday’s winter storm brought heavy snowfall to Northeast Ohio, cleanup continues on main and neighborhood roads in Cleveland. The major winter storm has pushed out of the area. There are still are a few morning flurries but those are fading with a mostly cloudy sky most of the day.
School closings and delays
More than 300 schools are closed or delayed, including large districts like Cleveland Metropolitan School District and Akron Public Schools. Kent State University announced its campuses would be closed Tuesday.
Watch out for pedestrians on the roads
Motorists should keep an eye out for pedestrians walking on the road. The sides are not cleared in most places, so pedestrians are walking in the street to get from Point A to Point B.
One thing to watch out for all over the area today is people walking in the street. The sidewalks are impossible so you'll need to look for people in the street. pic.twitter.com/MNAXOaqeRX— Mike Vielhaber (@MVielhaber) January 18, 2022

We found a @CityofCleveland plow driver clearing roads near Tremont. Cars on the streets make it tough in some spots. Some people are going to be digging out for quite some time this morning. pic.twitter.com/QtpBE9danQ— Meg Shaw (@MegDShaw) January 18, 2022
Plows were seen clearing residential streets in Tremont and also in the areas of East 63rd Street and Fleet Avenue.
The City of Alliance announced it will begin towing vehicles at 11 a.m. due to the parking ban. Residents can park in the street once their street has been plowed.
In Akron, the parking ban is still in effect for all Akron streets. The city said all available trucks are currently working in the third priority streets and will continue to do so until streets are plowed.
