Snow Removal Update for Saturday, December 23, 2017, 11:30 p.m.

Sixty-three City and contractor crews are plowing arterial streets and emergency and bus routes overnight until early morning. Crews report snow-covered streets and potentially slippery conditions.

The Lincoln Police Department reports five accidents since 6 p.m. and no injuries. Drivers are urged to use caution, drive slowly, increase following distance and prepare for limited visibility.

Operations will be assessed and adjusted between 4 and 6 a.m. when snowfall is forecasted to lighten. At that point, plows may turn to residential streets. Parking bans are not in effect at this time, but residents are asked to move their cars off City streets to help crews with clearing operations.

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.
