Snow Removal/Parking Ban Update for Wednesday, February 20, 2019, 5:15 p.m.

The Mayor has lifted the snow emergency parking ban for the City.  Where allowed, parking is now available on major streets.  Residential street parking bans are not in effect.  Crews have completed arterial plowing operations.  Based on measurement data gathered across the City, snowfall during the February 19 to 20 weather event did not meet the 4-inch threshold to warrant plowing residential streets.  A favorable weather forecast over the next two days should accelerate snow melt.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, five units will monitor arterial street conditions in the City’s four quadrants, spreading granular salt, pre-wet with brine as needed.  Additional units are standing by.  Arterial, bus, and school routes range from wet to normal driving conditions.

Be alert for slick spots and black ice during the morning commute, especially on untreated streets and sidewalks.  Slow down and allow extra travel time and stopping distance.  Requests for service may be submitted by calling the Transportation and Utilities Snow Center at 402-441-7644, or through UPLNK at or by downloading the free application for iOS or Android.  The UPLNK platform may be used for a variety of non-emergency requests, including snow.

Please stay informed on the status of snow operations in Lincoln.  Additional information is available on the City website at  If you have questions, you may call the Transportation and Utilities Snow Center at 402-441-7644.
