City's Crews Plowing & Treating Streets

City's Crews Plowing & Treating Streets

January 1, 2014
10:04 p.m.

The City of Lee’s Summit's snow removal crews are plowing and treating primary and secondary routes throughout the City and will continue to do so overnight in preparation for rush hour on Thursday morning, Jan. 2. Snow crews are also plowing one pass on residential streets at this time. Once the snowfall ends, plowing and treating will be underway on all City-owned streets throughout the community.

Earlier today, primary, secondary and residential streets were pre-treated in Lee’s Summit. However, the temperature expected near 4 degrees overnight (Jan. 1), will limit the effectiveness of the rock salt on roads. Besides temperatures well below freezing, drifting snow is a possibility with north wind 13 to 17 mph accompanied by gusts as high as 26 mph. Windy conditions also make it necessary to plow streets more than once, which can slow down snow removal efforts.

The City’s snow removal crews will continue to monitor weather and road conditions in order to make necessary changes to the City’s response.

Residents are reminded to use caution when driving and walking on pavement as well as the following:

     Remove vehicles from streets.
     Remove trash cans from the street after pick-up has occurred. DO NOT place trash bags and cans beyond your curb line.
     Shovel snow to the side of your driveway to lessen the amount of snow left at your driveway entrance.
     Clear snow from around fire hydrants so they can be easily located during emergencies.
     Do not make snow tunnels on or near streets or driveways. Snow plows and other drivers may not see the snow tunnels and could accidently injure someone playing inside of them.

The Snow Desk, available at (816) 969-1870, opened at 9:30 a.m. on Jan. 1 and will remain open until the snow removal efforts are complete.

To learn more about the City’s snow removal program, visit LSpw.net select “Snow and Ice Removal” or stay up- to-date on Nixle, Facebook and Twitter. Visit LSfire.net for Weather Safety Information. Residents are also encouraged to stay up-to-date on weather information by listening to local newscasts.
