First Snowfall

November 21, 2015 11:21 AM

As is my annual tradition, below is one of the first city snow plow reports. I send this one to remind you that you too can sign up for snow plow updates at:

These reminders are very helpful and include reminders about alternate side parking, where to park downtown and whether residential non-salt routes will be plowed. After receiving a few you should be able to see the care and concern that our city staff puts into making sure that we plow appropriately for the conditions we expect so that we have safe roads, but don't spend our city budget on unnecessary plowing.

Also, please be safe out there. I just watched a US Highway video from last night in Chicago where a dozen or more vehicles piled up simply because a few drivers were just not driving at an appropriate speed. 

Snow Plowing Updates
by Chris Kelley, Streets Superintendent

The Streets Division will have 36 plow units on the streets on Saturday. 32 units will be working to keep our salt routes open and four units will be sanding on residential streets and around Camp Randall Stadium in advance of today's game. We will also have crews clearing City owned sidewalks, crosswalks and bike paths.

At this time we do not plan on plowing residential streets. Warm pavement temperatures melted a lot of the early snowfall and with the warm temperatures forecast for the coming days almost all of today's snowfall should be melted in advance of any future storms.

Any decisions on overnight operations will be made after we evaluate conditions later in the afternoon.
