Crews have been out for hours trying to make your commute a little easier...but as always, it's up to drivers to be careful.
Snow may be fun for a little while... But sooner or later, reality sets in.
"Well, basically you're going off, you're getting into the median or the ditch and you get stuck and you can't get out," Jeff Carstens said.
"People actually doing more than the speed limit, which is surprising," Stormie Coleman said.
With more than 70 plows and 19 routes to hit, Lincoln Public Works has been working around the clock on the roads... Hitting emergency routes and arterials... Then of course, residential side streets.
Officials say once those are plowed, the salt and sand mixture comes into play. And with no parking ban in effect, they're trying to get it all done as quickly as possible. However, residents are asked to move their cars off the street.
"We're going to be trying to do both sides as we go through there today. Try and get them done a little bit quicker before the cold weather hits in and freezes everything down good and solid tomorrow," Andrew Edwards of Public Works said.
Not to mention, you have to be careful out there. The latest numbers from Lincoln Police show there have been nearly 60 accidents today. That's about twice as many as you'd see on a normal day.
Another reminder, slow down and don't follow too closely.
"You see some break lights, you better start slowing down, cause you're not stopping."
Public works officials say they hope to have all streets cleared up by Friday.
