Snow plows make test run Thursday

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Don't be shocked if you see snow plows around Richmond this week.

The city is doing a test-run Thursday of its new snow removal equipment. About 50 crews will drive the snow routes on the city's main roads. This doesn't include neighborhoods.

Mayor Dwight Jones says he wants to make sure public works is ready to roll when the snow starts falling this winter.
