Winter Operations Update for Thursday, February 16, 2023, 10:35 a.m.

Lincoln Transportation and Utilities has declared a Snow Emergency for the City of Lincoln, effective at 5 a.m. Thursday, February 16. There are two parking bans that begin at noon, Thursday, February 16:

  • A RESIDENTIAL parking ban means that parking is banned only on the odd side of residential streets. This will assist snowplow crews in clearing neighborhood streets faster and more efficiently. A residential parking ban applies to streets that are not emergency snow routes, arterials or bus routes or included in a snow removal district.
  • A SNOW EMERGENCY parking ban means parking is banned on both sides of emergency snow routes, arterial streets, school and bus routes. Maps of these routes are available at under the “Parking Bans & Ordinances” tab. Please plan for alternate parking to allow crews room to clear the way safely and efficiently.

City Operations: Residential plowing will begin at noon, Thursday, February 16 and plow crews will continue operations throughout the day.

National Weather Service: A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 6 p.m. Thursday, February 16. Additional snow accumulation up to 2 inches and wind gusts up to 30 mph are possible.

Weather conditions: Snow

Street conditions: Snow continues to fall. Streets are snow covered. Winter driving conditions are in effect.

StarTran: At 9:30 a.m., StarTran suspended bus service on routes 22, 24, and 25 due to UNL’s weather related closure. StarTran buses are operating during the storm, with some routes delayed about 15 minutes. Riders are encouraged to plan for delays and dress appropriately for winter conditions. Lincoln residents who live on bus routes are urged to clear sidewalks promptly for easy and safe access to and from bus stops. This effort will also help prevent bus delays.
