SYRACUSE, N.Y. (NCC News) – Some Syracuse University students had to carefully trudge their way to classes last year on unplowed sidewalks. Students say this was a result of the city service not fully clearing all the streets. Euclid Avenue resident Aleks Galindo says those trips were no walk in the park.

“Last year walking to school was pretty dangerous,” said Galindo. “There was ice everywhere.”

This year, the university decided to plow the sidewalks of both Euclid and Comstock Avenues itself to avoid any more problems. Galindo says this has made a world of difference.

“They are actually clearing the sidewalks, which is nice, for a change,” said Galindo. “I no longer feel like I am going to eat the sidewalk every time i set foot outside my house.”

Galindo hopes the new snow-plowing plan remains in place for many winters to come.
