Twenty City crews continue to apply granular salt pre-wet with brine to arterial streets. Fifty-seven snowplows are on standby to deploy as accumulations increase. Falling temperatures will create slick driving conditions, which will continue to deteriorate, especially in untreated areas.
The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning until 6 p.m. Sunday for Lincoln and Lancaster County. Snow accumulation of up to four inches and wind gusting to 40 miles per hour are expected. Avoid traveling, and if you must venture out, slow down and allow extra travel time and stopping distance.
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.
