TULSA, Okla. - Crews in Tulsa were busy clearing the streets Tuesday, although the job got easier as the day wore on.

Snow turned into slush and now even the slush is almost gone. The roads have improved vastly over the last several hours; drivers said this latest storm wasn't as bad as Sunday’s.

By the afternoon on Tuesday the main roads were mostly wet than anything else.

"Great! I didn't have any problems at all," said Carol Lewallen, a Tulsa resident.

And that gave AAA driver Andre Mayo time for a lunch break.

“There were a few wrecks this morning and I had to pull some cars out of ditches but it has gotten better since the day has gone on," said Mayo.

But that didn't stop city of Tulsa plows and trucks heading back on the roads with salt looking for trouble spots.

During Sunday’s storm people had a hard time making it up some of Tulsa’s hilly roads but on Tuesday, it was no problem.

The Public Works Department said Sunday's snow left the city in better shape to actually tackle the streets today.

"It kind of helped that we had one before because we still had a lot of salt residue so it helped melt the slush and stuff before we actually put more down,” said Tim McCorkell with Public Works.

One area plows didn't get to though were side and residential streets, but even those roads were drivable for the most part.

There’s a new shift of plow and truck drivers that will be in at midnight.
