The snow is creating problems for drivers all across the area.
As roads packed with snow, is making it dangerous out there.
But street crews are out in force plowing to make it safer for drivers to get around.
Moline public works is starting off the New Year with all hands on deck to get the roads cleaned up.
"I'm out here trying to get everyone home safe," said Bill Deadmond, who is working the graveyard shift on New Year's day clearing the streets until the job gets done right.
"There's ice and snow packed, so you put salt down, scrape it and do it all over again."
As soon as it starts snowing, Moline Public Works fills every route.
11 in total, with 10 ton dump trucks filled with salt.
"If anybody has a break down, and problems, there's people that pull out in front of you, get stuck, so I'm here to make everyone's able to do their job," said Greg VanVoltenburg, who is the heartbeat of the operation.
He's manning the radio with plow drivers.
"There's a lot going on in the truck. They're spreading salt, they're lifting the plow, tilting it left and right, and then watching for traffic. So they're pretty busy."
But once the snow quits, that doesn't mean the jobs over either.
"Once we get done with the main routes, and there's 2 inches of snow we go into the residential, so that's another 2 days," VanVoltenburg.
And Deadmond said over the last 18 years he's been plowing Moline streets, snow fall can come anytime, so he's always ready, even if it's a holiday.
"Called in on Christmas, Super Bowl. You get used to it."
Public Works asks drivers to be patient and not pass the plows while they are shoveling snow.
Also if you can move your vehicle off the street, it makes it easier and quicker to get the roads cleaned up.
