North Bismarck Residents Still Stranded By Snow

News
It may be a little icy where you live, but it’s likely a plow has been down your street.
That’s not the case for one residential area in North Bismarck
Shelby Rose found one street that has been snowed in since Monday.
 
Right past the Walmart on 83 lies a small neighborhood.
One that hasn’t been able to leave all week.
 
“This is ridiculous. I’m living, you know, in the city, a major city in North Dakota, and I’ve been stranded for 3 days.”
 
Tom lives right down this road on Crestfield Avenue. But, as you can tell, we’re unable to get to him. So, my only other option was to speak to him on the phone.
 
“Our road doesn’t get plowed. We’ve lived here 5 years. Our has only been plowed one time. We have to pay people to plow our road”
 
It cost them upwards of 80 dollars for one plow. 
And that’s not the only worry on their minds.
 
“I have problems with my legs, and I have diabetes. So, what if there’s an emergency at my house? What if our house burns? We have young people upstairs who live above us. And what if this house burns? Responders cannot get back to us.”
 
Tom has called Burleigh County every day since Monday.
His wife even spotted a plow that was clearing Ridgedale that intersects Crestfield. 
 
“The state guy sat there saying, “No, I can’t touch that. That’s county.” And what I don’t understand is, okay, it’s plain and simple. The counties are in the state. And what would it hurt him to run his plow truck right down this road?”
 
So far, Tom has not gotten an answer from Burliegh County but hopes they can come plow his road soon.
 
We have also made calls over to Burleigh County.
Marcus Hall, the city engineer say that most areas within the county will be plowed before tomorrow evening or by Saturday.
