By the typical nature of plow operations, snow gets piled up extra high at corners right where pedestrians need to cross. For many, many years huge piles of snow were left on these street corners without any concern as to how pedestrians were to navigate the area. Local residents, whose responsibility it would be to clear the sidewalk, just couldn't handle clearing a path for peds when heavy dense snow was piled anywhere from 6 to 12 feet high.
However this year, North Brunswick's DPW has been going out and clearing pathways through the massive corner piles with a NEW special piece of equipment. They are doing so a day or two after the streets have been properly cleared of snow. It does seem that they are concentrating their efforts in neighborhoods like mine which are in walking distance to schools, which would make sense and is a wise use of limited resources.
