Winter Operations Update for Friday, February 17, 2023, 5:15 a.m.

A Snow Emergency for the City of Lincoln is in effect. There are two parking bans. The snow emergency parking ban will end at 8 a.m. today, Friday, February 17. The residential parking ban will remain in effect.

  • 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: Emergency Snow Routes, arterial, bus and school routes have been plowed and treated. Crews will continue patrolling throughout the day addressing any trouble spots as temperatures warm. Residential plowing continues across the city. Some areas are progressing faster than others due to snow depth, drifting, and parking. Crews will remain on duty until all areas are plowed.

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.
