City crews and equipment are in operation 24-hours to keep streets clear of ice and snow with the focus on priority streets, emergency routes, and bus routes until conditions improve. We appreciate your patience as we work towards removing snow and ice in other areas as conditions and resources allow.

Snow plowing routes are established based on traffic volume, speed, road classification, road terrain, and accessibility by transit and emergency services. View our map of priority snow removal routes. More Snow and Ice Control information »
