The Streets Division will be conducting snow removal operations on several streets this week. Snow removal operations will begin at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and continue 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. (Recently added streets in Italics.)
