Fifty-seven plow crews have been clearing arterial streets since 5:30 a.m. today. Crews will continue plowing and applying granular salt pre-wet with brine until snow and winds subside. High winds and blowing snow are creating slick driving conditions and reduced visibility. Untreated areas may be ice-covered.
The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning until 6 p.m. Sunday for Lincoln and Lancaster County. Snow accumulation of up to eight inches and wind gusting to 45 miles per hour are expected. Avoid traveling, and if you must venture out, slow down and allow extra travel time and stopping distance.
Please stay informed on the status of snow operations in Lincoln. Additional information is available on the City website at snow.lincoln.ne.gov. If you have questions, you may call the Public Works Snow Center at 402-441-7644.
