Harrisburg Patriot-News, Thursday, February 15, 2007:

[PennDOT District 8 spokesman Greg] Penny stressed PennDOT does not have a bare-pavement policy. “Our policy is to make the roads passable and safe,” he said.

Based on the condition many side streets in Lower Paxton and Swatara townships are still in days after this storm, I’d say the municipalities don’t have a bare-pavement policy, either. It’s quite a bumpy ride around here; packed snow and ice partially or fully covers many roads.  I don’t think we’ve seen a plow or salter on my street (Harvest Drive) for days.
