SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Close to a foot of snow is blanketing Mid-Michigan.

It's making for a pretty treacherous drive on our area roadways for motorists like Robert Gomez.

"The roads are pretty crazy out there," Gomez said.

MDOT has 25 trucks are making round the clock plows on the expressways.

"Our crews are working on keeping the roads as clear as possible, so at this point we're focusing a lot of our energy on I-75 and I-675 as well," said MDOT spokeswoman, Jocelyn Hall.

But the surface streets are a bit trickier.

City and county road crews are getting slowed down by drivers getting stuck and clogging up the roadways.

Officials in Saginaw warn some side streets may not be dug out until Thursday.
