Winter Operations Update for Thursday, February 16, 2023, 8:20 p.m.

A Snow Emergency for the City of Lincoln is in effect. There are two parking bans:

  • 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: Crews are plowing emergency snow routes, arterial, bus and school routes. These routes will also be treated with granular salt pre-wet with brine to reduce chances of overnight refreeze. Residential plowing is progressing across the city. Crews will remain on duty overnight.

Weather conditions: Clear

Street conditions: Arterial streets range from wet to partially snow covered. Residential streets are snow covered and snow packed. Drivers should be alert for slick spots and refrozen areas. Please adhere to the parking bans and utilize alternate parking to allow plows to clear your streets quickly and efficiently.

StarTran: 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.
