As light snow falls in Lincoln, the City has a partial deployment of material spreaders on the main arterials, focusing on key intersections and bridges. Public Works continues to respond to service requests in the residential districts, applying sand on slopes, at stop signs and at other trouble areas. Public Works also has pothole repair crews deployed anytime the streets are not snow covered, and will again be able to fully staff street maintenance services once the snow operations for this week’s storm are completed.
City crews worked overnight to clear snow in the City’s snow removal districts. Public Works reports that operations are about two-thirds completed, and the effort is expected to wrap up by 7 a.m. Saturday. The snow removal district parking ban will be in effect one more night. From 12:01 a.m. to 7 a.m. Saturday, February 6th, parking is prohibited on both sides of the streets in the snow removal districts. They include streets in Downtown and the Haymarket; University Place; Havelock; Bethany; College View; 11th and “G”; 17th and Washington; and 25th and Sumner. Maps can be found at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword snow).
To assist downtown residents during snow removal district parking bans, free overnight parking is offered at Center Park Garage, 1100 “N” St. The service will be offered from 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. tonight. Customers will be charged the posted rate for any time beyond those hours. Vehicles that remain in the garage past 10 a.m. will be charged for the entire time the vehicle was in the facility.
The snow removal district parking ban is the only parking ban still in effect. The public may report trouble areas to the Public Works Snow Center at 402-441-7644. Additional information is available on the City website at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow).
