City operations:  Lincoln Transportation and Utilities (LTU) crews treated arterial streets with anti-ice brine today and snowfighters are on standby ready when conditions change. Five to eight inches of snow is forecasted which would warrant plowing streets citywide.

A snow emergency parking ban will go into effect at 3 a.m., Saturday, January 1. A snow emergency means parking is banned on both sides of emergency snow routes, bus routes and other major arterial streets. A map of these routes is available at

A residential parking ban will go into effect at noon Saturday, January 1. Parking on even-numbered sides of the street will be banned in 2022.

Please plan ahead and move vehicles off emergency snow routes, arterial streets and bus routes. Residential areas should park vehicles in garages or driveways and remove vehicles from the even-numbered sides of the street.
