Crews have moved in to residential streets

We are making progress!  But there is still a lot of snow on the ground and we may get more today. The City of Cleveland asks everyone to continue to limit travel so our snow crews can clear the streets more effectively.  Staying off the roads allows snow plows greater access to the road and makes it easier for emergency vehicles to travel.

Roads: Currently, a total of 47 crews (41 snow plows and 6 graders) are working on residential streets. We will stay fully staffed all day. Please move cars off of residential streets to allow plows curb-to-curb access.

Parking Ban: The parking ban is still in effect.  As a result, stopping, standing, and parking of vehicles will be restricted and prohibited on City streets with posted red and white signs UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Parking is prohibited on designated Snow Emergency streets, which are identified as necessary for transportation, the movement of food and fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health and police protection and other vital facilities of the City. If you park on a Snow Emergency street, your car can be towed.

Severe Cold: We’re gearing up for another week of very cold temperatures and wind chills. If you must go outdoors, take proper precautions to stay safe. Make sure to check on your older relatives and friends. Director Jane Fumich, Department of Aging offers advice here.

The City of Cleveland encourages residents to:

  • Park off-street on all city streets to give allow snow plows room to plow curb-to-curb.
  • Stay off the streets as much as possible for their own personal safety and to allow snow plows greater access to the city’s roadways.
  • If you must travel, use caution, allow extra time, and remember not to “block the box” at intersections.
  • Pay attention to local news for weather advisories and visit http://www.city.cleveland.oh.us/ and clecityhall.com for additional information from the City of Cleveland.
