There were also a number of severe accidents between 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. , a majority of them came on Eastbound I-80 and at 7:20 a.m., a traffic alert was issued by OPD.  

Residential streets in Omaha remain an issue, however.

Near Midtown, a garbage truck could be seen struggling to go up a hill on a snow-covered road.

 

 

In Benson, one woman says the streets weren’t clear from snow and ice earlier in the week. The fresh snow is on top of a slippery mess.

Another band of snow is expected to move through the Omaha area later today, potentially impacting the evening commute.
