City’s Crews Scheduled to Work Sat., March 2 – Wed., March 6

City crews are scheduled to work in 12-hour rotating shifts from the evening of Sat., March 2, through the morning of Wed., March 6, as another winter storm with accumulating snowfall is forecast for the area. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Saturday into Sunday, with snowfall expected to begin Saturday evening and continuing overnight into Sunday. Travel conditions are expected to be hazardous during the storm.

Strong winds and gusts are expected to create low visibility and blowing and drifting snow, and primary and secondary streets may have to be plowed multiple times. Extremely cold temperatures will severely limit the effectiveness of any salt applied, and temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for several days following the storm. Some streets will be snow packed even after they have been plowed and treated, and will remain snow packed until temperatures increase.   

Depending on the total snowfall, it may takes crews from 32.5 to 40 hours after accumulating snow ends for crews to plow and treat the more than 1,000 lane miles in the city. The City will continue to monitor the weather forecast and update its response accordingly.
