(LANSING) – Due to current inclement weather, the City of Lansing Public Service Department will have winter maintenance vehicles on city roads continuously throughout the storm. Main roads are the first priority and residential roads will be addressed as possible, once the storm subsides and main roads are cleared. Approximately 2 inches of snow accumulated overnight. Snow is expected to taper off between 4:00PM and 5:00PM, with a total accumulation of approximately 6 inches. Please drive with caution by keeping a safe distance from plow and salt trucks.
“Our Operations and Maintenance crews are working hard to keep roads safe as the snow continues to fall throughout the day,” said Mayor Andy Schor. “We are prepared and ready to keep the City of Lansing moving.”
The City of Lansing has not yet declared a snow emergency, but will be monitoring conditions throughout the day. Mayor Schor requests that if you do not have to go out and drive, to minimized driving until snowfall is complete. Additionally, he asks that residents avoid parking on the street as much as possible to allow for proper plowing of roads.
