Snow Plowing Updates

A declared snow emergency remains in effect as clean-up from the February 17 storm continues this evening.

Throughout the day on Monday, Streets Division crews continued their regular post-storm work. The salt routes were maintained. Neighborhood streets were plowed back and sanded where needed. Snow removal operations were underway today as crews worked to scoop and haul excess snow that caused vision hazards and other obstructions. Other crews also worked on plowing bus stops, school crosswalks, and so on.

The salt routes are in good winter driving condition, and should remain so through the evening and into the Tuesday morning commute. However, neighborhood streets may still have slick spots, so roadway users must make good choices. Remain alert, cautious, and slow when traveling over snow-covered streets.

Beginning at midnight tonight, crews will begin the second night of snow emergency plowing to push snow back to the curb that had been blocked by parked cars and apply sand where needed.

All residents are encouraged to choose off-street parking options tonight. Those who must park on the street - including parkers in the Snow Emergency Zone - need to follow alternate side parking rules.

Streets Division staff will continue to monitor the roads and the weather. Additional updates will be provided if operations change.
