DETROIT (AP) - City officials say Detroit streets yet to be plowed after the weekend’s heavy snowfall will be cleared by midnight.

Chief Operating Officer Gary Brown told reporters Tuesday that plowing had been completed in all but three residential areas. He says all major streets have been cleared.

Brown says the city just out of bankruptcy has a plan, is executing it and would “like to get done in 12 hours.”

The area got up to 16.7 inches of snow from the 24-hour storm that started early Sunday. Contractors hired by the city plow residential streets when snowfall totals reach 4 inches or more.

The city’s response to the storm has been quicker and more successful than in some past years when many residential streets sat unplowed for days after heavy snows.
