Parking Ban Update for Thursday, February 4, 2016, 4:30 a.m.

City crews completed plowing residential streets early this morning, and crews focused overnight on snow removal in the City’s eight snow removal districts, where snow is plowed into windrows, loaded into trucks and hauled out of the area. A snow removal district parking ban remains in effect until 7 a.m. this morning, and it will be in effect two more nights – from 12:01 to 7 a.m. Friday and Saturday, February 5th and 6th, in the eight districts. Parking is prohibited on both sides of the streets in the snow removal districts, and maps of the districts can be found at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword snow). Public Works expects to be about 25 percent completed with the snow removal operations by 8 a.m.

About 120 City and contracted workers remain on the streets. Crews also continue to patrol all arterials and residential routes, cleaning up residual snow and applying material as needed. Drivers may see some slick spots due to re-freezing, and residential streets are icy in places, so drivers should be cautious.

As of 4 a.m., a residential parking ban remains in effect for the odd-numbered sides of all streets that are not arterials or bus routes.

Please stay informed on the status of snow operations in Lincoln. Additional information is available on the City website at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow). If you have questions, you may call the Public Works Snow Center at 402-441-7644.
