Currently, Street Maintenance crews are working to plow main arterial streets city-wide. Snow is currently falling at a very heavy rate and road conditions are snow-packed and very slick. If you must travel, please do so with extreme caution and leave plenty of extra time to arrive at your destinations, as well as plenty of braking distance at intersections and when behind other vehicles.
This storm is forecast to produce very heavy snowfall and wind gusts as high 35 MPH, through at least 4:00 p.m. this afternoon. This will produce hazardous winter driving conditions throughout the day, including the morning and possibly the afternoon rush hours.
Plow crews will remain on the arterial and major collector streets until accumulating snowfall has ceased and those streets are clear before moving into the minor collectors and then onto the residential streets and cul-da-sacs.
At the current rate of snowfall plow operators will have a hard time keeping up with that rate, so the potential for snow packed roads at this time is HIGH.
Please DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PASS A PLOW THAT IS ACTIVLY PLOWING. Give the plows plenty of room to do their work. This will help them to complete plowing operations more quickly, effectively, and most importantly, safely for them and you.
Once again Street Maintenance would like to thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during this snowstorm event.
