City of Plymouth Declares Snow Emergency

The Snow Emergency is anticipated to remain in effect until 10:00 a.m. Sunday, residents should keep streets clear of parked cars.

As of 1 p.m. Saturday, the City of Plymouth declared a snow emergency, which is in effect for all streets within the city. 

The City Department of Municipal Services Crews are currently plowing major city streets and will move to full residential snow plowing operations during the overnight hours as weather conditions allow.

The Snow Emergency is anticipated to remain in effect until 10:00 a.m. Sunday. As of this time, travel is not currently advised. 

The City Municipal Services Department will maintain staffing to keep major roadways open throughout the afternoon and into the early evening. Late evening all crews will be sent home for brief period of required rest. All crews are anticipated to return at 4 a.m. on Sunday to complete a full snow plow of all streets in the City as well as all municipal parking lots. 

Residents are advised not to park on residential side streets during the overnight hours as keeping cars off the street will help expedite the plowing of all streets in the city once the crews are able to begin that process. In addition, residents are advised not to blow snow back onto plowed streets as this will delay the overall snow clearing procedures. Blowing or plowing snow into the City streets could create a traffic hazard and cause the snow removal process to be delayed as well as creating potential legal liability for the property owner. 

The City Fire Department also reminds residents to help keep fire hydrants clear of snow. In an emergency fire crews will need to have access to fire hydrants from the street side of the hydrant. 

The City will issue an E-News Alert when the Snow Emergency is over. In addition, E-News Alerts will be sent on City road conditions throughout the storm period.
