Public Works reports that it has refocused all 20 city crews on the emergency snow routes, arterials, bus and school routes ahead of the rush hour traffic to mitigate the chances of refreeze and slick spots during the morning commute. Drivers are urged to be cautious of refrozen areas, especially in the turn lanes. Once that operation is complete at around 8 a.m., 10 or more crews will return to residential areas to address service requests, hills and intersections, by applying sand.
All arterials, bus and school routes are in good condition. Non-treated residential streets still have slick areas and drivers should continue to exercise caution. Pedestrians are urged to use caution in parking lots, sidewalks and edges of roads.
The Lincoln Police Department reports 22 accidents since midnight Sunday and no accidents since midnight Monday.
Please stay informed on the status of snow operations in Lincoln. Additional information is available on the City website at snow.lincoln.ne.gov. If you have questions, you may call the Public Works Snow Center at 402-441-7644.
