UPDATE: Local road conditions across Lincoln

 Posted By: Veronica Ortega


Public Works crews have been working around the clock since Saturday to clear roads for people as they head back to work.

A full scale operation was launched Saturday night sending 38 plows to 19 routes around the city. The focus was main roads, school, and bus routes.

Difficult conditions and drifting snow forced crews to re-plow streets and apply brine overnight.

Police say Highway 34 east of O St. is closed this morning, and according to 511, US Route 6 is closed in both directions.

There is an emergency parking ban in effect for major arterial, school, and bus routes.

City officials say the roads are still packed with snow and ice, and they are urging caution while driving.
