City crews will work 12-hour shifts ahead of the snowy weather expected to impact the city Wednesday afternoon.
Public Works crews began pre-treating roadways this afternoon and will continue focusing on bridges and overpasses ahead of the snowfall.
All on-street parking downtown is prohibited after 5:00 p.m. Wednesday through 10:00 a.m. Friday morning to allow crews to plow downtown streets. The City will open the following garages on Wednesday to give residents a place to move their vehicles.
- Boush St. Garage – 112 West City Hall Ave
- York St. Garage – 215 W. York Street
Drivers should pull a ticket on entry and plan to remove their vehicle by 10:00 a.m. Friday.
The City will close the top decks in all parking garages until the snow melts and the surface is safe to park.
The City has 22 plows and 17 spreaders for snow response. More than 1,000 tons of salt, 400 tons of sand and 1,000 gallons of salt brine solution are ready for use. If additional support is needed, the City has contractors on standby to augment City crews.
Once the snow reaches two inches deep, City crews will begin plowing primary roadways. After these main arteries are clear, crews will focus on secondary routes. As a reminder, City crews will not plow residential streets for safety reasons and due to the size of the snow removal equipment.
