crews are engaged in a full-plowing operation with about 70 plows working to
clear the city's major arterials, snow emergency routes, bus routes and school
routes. "It's been a long
day and a long night for a lot of employees," says Scott Opfer with Lincoln
A snow emergency parking ban went
into effect at 8 a.m. this morning. A snow emergency means parking is
banned on emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial
streets. A map showing these routes is available on the City website at
lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow).
Lincoln Public Works will clear the roads through the night and Opfer
expects into late tomorrow.
The city is not implementing a residential parking ban but will work to
clear as many neighborhood streets as possible.
Lincoln Police Department has reported over 10
accidents as of 8 p.m. Tuesday. Streets are slick and caution is
urged while driving. StarTran reports that buses are running on time.
Please stay informed on the status
of snow operations in Lincoln. Additional
information is available on the City website at lincoln.ne.gov and in the blue
pages of your phone directory. If you have questions, you may call the
