Lincoln winter operations update

The emergency parking ban will end at 9p.m. on Saturday while the residential parking ban in the city has ended as of 4 p.m.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Lincoln Transportations and utilities is updating winter operations for the first winter storm of the season. They say they will continue patrolling routes to push back blowing snow and are applying granular salt pre-wet with brine as needed.

The snow emergency parking ban will end today at 9 p.m.  A snow emergency means parking is banned on both sides of emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets.

The residential parking ban ended on Saturday at 4 p.m. as residential streets are partially to completely snow covered with pavement accumulations generally less than 2″.

City operations:  Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) crews continue patrolling routes to push back blowing snow and are applying granular salt pre-wet with brine as needed. The snow accumulation is far less than anticipated so full-scale plowing operations will not be needed with this event.

 A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 9 p.m. tonight.

Drivers should be alert for slick conditions and reduced visibility from blowing snow overnight.

LTU appreciates drivers giving plow crews room to safely clear snow.  Please stay informed on the status of winter operations in Lincoln.  Additional information is available at snow.lincoln.ne.gov.
