A snow emergency parking ban and a residential parking ban are in effect until further notice. This means parking is banned on both sides of all emergency snow routes, bus and school routes, other major arterial streets, and on the even numbered sides of residential streets. For a map of these routes, visit snow.lincoln.ne.gov.
Vehicles parked illegally during Snow Emergency and Residential Parking bans are subject to fines, towing and storage costs at the owners’ expense. Vehicles parked in a way that does not allow emergency vehicles to pass may be ticketed for obstructing a public street. For information on towed vehicles, call the Emergency Communications Center, 402-441-7204.
More than sixty City and contractor crews continue to plow and apply deicing materials to emergency snow routes, arterial streets, bus and school routes. Full-scale residential plowing has begun and is expected to take approximately 24 hours before switching to the odd numbered sides of residential streets.
This has been a significant winter event with an average snowfall of nearly 7 inches across Lincoln. Our dedicated crews are working around the clock to clear the way for safer travel, so please be sure to give them plenty of room to do their job.
Arterial streets are slushy to snow and ice packed with very slick conditions. Residential streets are snow packed with difficult driving. Winter driving conditions should be observed citywide. Drivers should use caution during their morning commute, stay alert for slick spots, 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 Transportation and Utilities Snow Center at 402-441-7644.
