Cleanup efforts following the latest winter storm are still going on in some places.

On Friday, main roads were clear but some back roads still had snow on them in the Morgantown area. Officials are saying the next storm on its way is only going to make things worse on snow covered roads.

The Division of Highway's has spent $11 million more than what it though it would at this point. DOH officials are saying we're only 70% of the way through winter.

Morgantown Public Works and Engineering officials claim secondary roads aren't a priority during a storm because they have to worry about emergency officials traveling on main roads first.

With more snow expected over the weekend conditions might get very slick in some spots.

Terry Hough is the Director of Public Works and Engineering. She said, "You'll have some of those roads that we haven't been able to plow down to bare pavement have ice on them. Then you'll get the fresh snow on top of the ice."

This winter is taking a toll on snow removal equipment and workers, but officials are saying everyone is ready to battle the snow yet again.
