City’s Crews Continue to Plow and Treat Residential Streets

City crews plowed and treated residential streets throughout the day on Sunday, Jan. 13, and will continue overnight into Monday, Jan. 14. As of 7 p.m. on Sunday, 100% of primary and secondary streets and 50% of residential streets had been completed.

When snowfall totals 6-10 inches, it can take crews up to 40 hours after accumulating snow ends for crews to plow and treat the more than 1,000 lane miles in the city. The goal for completing all residential streets is 8 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 14.

​Please note that bare pavement is not always possible, and streets may have areas of snow pack even after being plowed and treated.
