City of Lincoln is under a snow emergency as winter weather slams the area

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — The Lincoln Transportation and Utilities Department has officially declared a snow emergency.

It went into effect at 5 a.m. Thursday, and it impacts where you can park.

LTU says parking is banned on both sides of emergency snow routes, arterial streets, school and bus routes starting at noon.

There is also a residential parking ban.

Don’t park on the side of the street with odd-numbered addresses. Move your car to the even side of the road so plows can clear the roads easier.

LTU will have crews out overnight on arterial streets and in residential areas to continue spreading anti-icing material and plow snow.

StarTran buses are continuing to operate despite the snow, but riders are encouraged to prepare for delays.

Anyone who lives along bus routes is asked to clear sidewalks as soon as possible to help prevent any slowdown.
