Winter Storm Update Afternoon January 20, 2023

Good afternoon all,

All city streets are passable at this time, although some minor collector and local residential streets still have areas that remain somewhat snow packed and most are wet with snow melt. Street Maintenance crews are currently conducting mop up operations in these areas. They will transition from plowing to treating icy and snow packed areas. The temperatures will drop well below freezing, and plowing will become ineffective when the snow packed areas freeze. Crews will continue to work through these areas until all these areas have been adequately treated.  

The NWS is currently forecasting very low overnight temperatures, mid-teens to low 20’s, through early Thursday morning. This will cause any remaining wet or snow packed areas on local streets, as well as bridge decks to freeze over, and remain icy until mid-day. Please remain cautious through this period of time as you travel throughout the City.

Street Maintenance will have a partial crew on duty early tomorrow morning to treat bridges and icy spots on the arterial streets, as well as trouble spots on the secondary and local residential streets.
