Snow Removal/Parking Ban Update for Tuesday, February 26, 2019, 4:30 a.m.

More than 60 City and contractor units continue to plow and de-ice streets with resources split between arterial and residential routes.  Crews are working on the odd sides of residential streets and cleaning up any missed areas.  Arterial streets range from dry to snow and ice packed with slick conditions.  Routes are being continuously staffed to deliver improved street conditions for the morning commute.  Drivers should be alert for slick spots and areas of refreeze, especially on hills.

The snow emergency parking ban will end at 8 a.m. today.  Where allowed, parking will be available on emergency snow routes, bus and school routes, and other major arterial streets.  The residential parking ban remains in effect.  It prohibits parking on the odd 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.  Parked vehicles that block emergency vehicle access may be ticketed for obstructing a public street.  For information on towed vehicles, call the Emergency Communications Center, 402-441-7204.

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.
