Mayor Virg Bernero today asked Lansing residents to avoid parking on unplowed neighborhood streets for the next 48 hours to avoid interfering with the city’s snow clearing operations.
Overnight parking on city streets is already prohibited by ordinance between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m., Bernero said, and violators who impede plowing operations will be ticketed. Once a street is cleared, normal parking activities permitted by ordinance can resume.
The city’s winter maintenance crews have been working continuously since the beginning of the storm to keep Lansing’s main roads open and started clearing local neighborhood streets this morning. With more than 400 miles to plow, city crews will be busy clearing main roads and local streets around-the-clock for the next 24-48 hours.
Please exercise caution while driving and be extra careful around the city’s plowing equipment.
