Whiteout Slows Snow Cleanup

NORTH EAST, Pa. (Erie News Now) – A stretch on Route 20 between northwestern Pennsylvania and western New York was just brutal over the weekend. This hampered snow clean-up for many.











The challenge of snow removal in North East, rested on the shoulders of Justin Safford and his crew.

He’s been running Safford Services out of Ripley, N.Y. for nearly 25 years and he’s quite familiar with these types of challenges.







Safford and his crew started with the big lots at Wavepoint 3PL in North East.

He told Erie News Now, “We start with the main lots to keep traffic flowing and then clear the employee lots.”





















His long night ended at 6:00 a.m. Sunday.

“Whenever it snows like this, you never think you are going to get done. When you finally wrap up, you are relieved.”
