Removal Operations for Thrusday and Friday will be Announced Later This Week
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 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.
Wednesday January 28th
Drake St. from S. Orchard to S. Park
Lakeside St from Gilson to John Nolan Dr.
N. Blair St. from E. Gorham to E. Washington
E. Mifflin St from N. Blair to N. Butler
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.
