[February 12, 2020] 

In anticipation of the forecast of up to 5 inches of snow beginning this afternoon the Lincoln Street Department would like to remind residents who live along marked Snow Routes parking on the street is prohibited after 2" of snow and until the street has been plowed.

Residents should seek alternative parking.

Also be reminded of the 2:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. No Parking areas in the downtown area.

It is also encouraged the resident throughout the city refrain from parking on the streets and find alternative parking if at all possible. This will greatly enhance the ability of crews to plow the streets sooner and more complete.

As soon as the crews finish plowing operations they will begin treating streets with salt. The forecast is calling for extremely cold temperatures Thursday night through Friday. This will limit the effectiveness of any treatment to the streets so expect slippery driving conditions until warmer weather arrives Saturday.

If you have to travel please do so with extreme caution and give snow removal crews space while traveling.

If there are any questions or concerns contact Street Superintendent Walt Landers at 217-732-4655.
