The Streets Division will be conducting snow removal operations on several streets this week. Snow removal operations will begin at 9 a.m. on Thursday and Friday as late as 2 p.m. Additional snow removal operations for later in the week will be announced as soon as a decision on where the operations will take place. Snow Removal will cause delays for traffic and motorists are urged to find alternate routes.
"We need to clear snow in order to widen the traffic lanes and free up parking spaces," George Dreckmann of the Streets Division said. "This operation involves many vehicles and will tie up traffic."
The snow removal schedule is as follows.
Thursday January 29th
Union St. from Oak St. to E. Washington Av.
High St. from Delaplaine to Short St.
Short St. from W. Wingra to Fish Hatchery Rd.
All of Lake Ct.
Friday January 30th
1100 Block of Harrison
S. Brooks St. from Delaplaine to Fish Hatchery Rd.
S. Orchard from Regent St. to Drake St.
Parking is being temporarily restricted on the sections of the affected streets. Bright orange temporary "No Parking" signs have been posted. Vehicles must be moved by 7 a.m. in the areas where snow removal will take place. Violators will be ticketed and towed.
