DPW Storm Update

February 9, 2016 01:00 AM – Radar shows that the accumulating snow has ended. DPW main road crews are conducting final scrapes of their routes, and then will treat their roads a final time with material for the night. Secondary road crews are cleaning up and pushing back their routes. As the vast majority of the crews have been working for 22 hours, and will be close to the 24 hour mark when the above is completed, we then will end operations for the night. A limited crew will be in at 7 AM to deal with complaints, and prep for sidewalk snow plowing.

February 8, 2016 10:00 PM – The storm keeps hanging on, with periodic bands of snow, some of which are heavy. DPW crews are still out plowing main and secondary roads.

February 8, 2016 4:00 PM – We are in a lull.  Forecasts are predicting we will be still getting light snow for the rest of the evening.  DPW plows are continuing to work to get caught up from the heavy snows.  If the snow does remain light we will be able to begin to clean up, widen out roads, and push back corners later this evening,

February 8, 2016 12:00 PM – We are experiencing bands of heavy snow, gusting winds, and periods of limited visibility. The plows are all out, working hard to keep the roads passable. If you are able to, please stay off the roads.

February 8, 2016 08:00 AM – With the snow starting to accumulate, main road plows have begun their routes. Secondary roads, and parking lot plows will be starting their routes shortly. With the predictions of blizzard conditions and significant snowfall, please stay off the roads if you can.
