In Yekaterinburg, the unexpected March snow fell and paralyzed traffic. Wet snow did not form snowdrifts and blockages on the roads, but, on the contrary, instantly melted. Puddles and slippery porridge interfered with the movement of cars on most of the central transport arteries of the Ural capital.
Thus, at 9 am Belinsky Street “got up”. In the direction to the center, the highway was loaded with 8 points, which is 3 points higher than the norm. Eight-point corks were formed on the streets of Blucher, East and on March 8. Record morning cork for the last week stretched on the Koltsovsky tract. The length of the congestion was 4.7 km.
Meteorologists warn that Ekaterinburg will still face snowfalls until the end of the first month of spring. Snow falls will stop in early April.
