MILLBURY (CBS) – With all the snow in Massachusetts, some public works crews are having a hard time keeping up with mother nature. In Millbury, residents on Route 122A don’t have any sidewalks.

They say the problem is worst when kids are walking to school in the morning.

“It’s just constant traffic,” says high school senior Amanda Berube. “If it’s sunny in the morning, some of the snow will melt and it’s slushy and slippery, so then you’ve got to go further into the road. It’s miserable.”

WBZ-TV’s Christina Hager reports.

When neighbor Rocker Gianette called the town manager, he was told the town is responsible for clearing the sidewalk since it is a state road.

“Cars are laying on the horn because they’re in the street and now the cars don’t have a place to go, and the kids have no place to walk,” he explains.

He and other residents are concerned Tuesday’s storm could make their bad situation even worse.

“Add another 6 inches of snow to this, they’re going to plow up the snow banks again.”

He says residents have not been able to get through to the Millbury Public Works Department. No one at the office returned messages from WBZ either.
