City snow crews will continue plowing operations all day across Lincoln. About 100 vehicles are out on the streets, including City and contracted equipment. If you do need to be out today, use extreme caution, and give the snow plows plenty of room to operate. If a traffic light is not operating, treat the intersection as a four-way stop.

With school cancelled and less traffic on the streets, Police report only five accidents since midnight. StarTran buses are running on time.
A snow emergency parking ban remains in effect for the City of Lincoln. Parking is banned on both sides of the street on emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets. A map showing these routes can be found on the City website. The ban will remain in effect until further notice. With continued snow and strong winds, crews often need to make more than one pass down the street.
All Lincoln City Libraries are closed for today, and all meeting scheduled there are cancelled or postponed.
