- Overnight lows are expected to drop to the teens. Some road surfaces may be icy, even if they appear to be free of snow. Please drive with care, and allow extra time for travel.
- Plow crews will likely be able to begin work on the minor collectors, and even some residential streets during the overnight hours tonight and into tomorrow.
The priority up until this point has been to clear all of the main arterial and major collector streets prior to working on the minor collector and residential streets. This allows for heaver traffic flows out of neighborhoods to safely travel without a significant risk of accidents due to snow packed and icy streets. Based on current weather forecasts, we feel that we will make good progress clearing residential streets, starting tonight, through Thursday.
Additionally, beginning tomorrow, Wednesday January 27th, we will began removing snow from the downtown area with contracted help. This will create some impact to traffic in the area. Traffic will be directed with the help of Citizens On Patrol, so please be mindful of the work and obey the direction of these fine volunteers.
Plows have been working continuously since Sunday morning. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we move to clearing residential and secondary streets overnight tonight.
