During the snowstorm gridlock Friday, on Lindbergh Boulevard between Clayton Road and Manchester Road, traffic was at a standstill. Travel time was two-plus hours. However, at the point of maximum congestion at the bottom of the hill, several employees of Trees, Forests and Landscapes Inc. were directing the traffic flow. They queued up the vehicles, gave 10 seconds of instruction for driving on ice, and let them go. If they did not make it all the way, two more employees up the hill pushed them to keep the vehicles moving.
On Monday, I met a neighbor who works for this company. It was indeed them out there Friday night. They spent six hours assisting traffic and pushed hundreds of cars. If they had not been there, the gridlock would have been far worse. A big thank you goes out to this company and its employees.
