Residents praise snow-clearing efforts

Road crews have cleared away snow from many side streets around New Jersey following a snowstorm that piled up various amounts throughout the state.



In Oakland and Franklin Lakes in Bergen County, which each saw about 9 inches of snow, blacktop was visible early Friday afternoon.



Residents there and elsewhere praised the work.



"At seven in the morning, the place was buried," said Jim Lariviere, of Nutley. "The streets were passable by one in the afternoon, so you couldn't beat that."



News 12 viewers reported early that Fanny Road in Boonton was still a mess, but by the time News 12 New Jersey arrived, Fanny Road and Rockaway Street were clear.



"This is one of the steepest streets in Boonton," said resident Thomas Hansen. "They did a great job."
