Giant snow piles cause hazards for drivers as crews work to clear roadways

- Thursday marked five days since the storm ended and even major roadways in the D.C. area were experiencing problems getting around the snow.

FOX 5’s Melanie Alnwick was at Nebraska Avenue in northwest D.C. where giant snow piles could be found right in the middle of the road.

Usually, these hills form when snow cleared from side streets and sidewalks is piled up. The piles are then removed by heavy loaders and dump trucks

The appearance of the snow piles may have taken some drivers by surprise, as they were not there on Wednesday. Motorists were forced to zig-zag around the huge piles.

The piles also caused bottlenecks to appear as drivers found it hard to see around them.
