Snow Removal Update for Friday, February 15, 2019, 11:10 a.m.

Ninety-three units are currently plowing and applying granular salt pre-wet with brine to arterial, bus and school routes.  Arterial streets range from partially to completely snow-covered.

The Transportation and Utilities Department reminds residents that when snowfall occurs during regular business hours it is able to dispatch additional units which are otherwise unavailable after 5 p.m.  This escalation of resources allows crews to clear streets sooner while navigating higher daytime traffic volumes.

The National Weather Service Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. today.  Snow accumulation of up to 4 inches is possible.  Be alert for slick spots and black ice throughout the day.  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.
