Snow Removal Update for Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 9:35 a.m.

More than 60 City and contractor crews are now beginning residential plowing as they complete work on arterial, school and bus routes.  Street conditions range from partially-covered, to snow- and ice-packed. Traffic on treated streets is moving well and conditions are expected to improve throughout the day.

Residential parking bans are not in effect.  Residents are encouraged to use off-street parking to allow crews to more efficiently complete plowing operations.  Residents are reminded that it is illegal to push or blow snow into the street, alley or sidewalk, and violators are subject to a fine.  Those who are unable to clear their properties can call 402-441-7644 to request volunteer assistance or visit lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow angels).  Volunteer sign-up is also available at this website.

Drivers should be alert to changing street conditions.  Be alert for slick spots and areas of refreeze, especially on untreated streets and sidewalks.  Slow down and increase following 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.
