Snow emergency lifted, drivers urged to use caution

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The snow removal district and snow emergency parking bans have expired.

City crews ended plowing and material spreading operations at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Starting at midnight, 10 units will be patrolling arterial streets and bridges, treating slick areas as needed.

Arterial streets are generally wet and beginning to dry to normal conditions. Drivers are reminded to continue being cautious. Be alert for moisture to refreeze overnight, creating slick areas on streets, parking lots and sidewalks.

Residents and businesses are responsible for clearing sidewalks, curb cuts at driveways and access to fire hydrants on their properties. It is illegal to push or blow snow into or on any street, alley or sidewalk, and violators are subject to a fine. Those who need help clearing sidewalks can call 402-441-7644 to request volunteer assistance or visit lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow angels) and find volunteers to help.

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.
