Snow Removal Update
DPW crews have been out since the beginning of the storm and will continue to work to keep East Lansing's streets passable. Plow crews will continue to focus on major streets, state trunklines and hills and hazardous corners on locals streets during the storm. Once the storm has ended and major streets and trunklines are clear, crews will transition to local streets, possibly as early as this evening. The plowing of alleys, dead ends and cul-de-sacs will extend into tomorrow. DPW's plan will be adjusted if the forecast changes.
Motorists are encouraged to drive carefully today and to drive for the conditions. Motorists are asked not to tailgate plow trucks and to be careful when passing.
East Lansing property owners are reminded to clear the sidewalks adjacent to their property: http://www.cityofeastlansing.com/snowremoval. If possible, residents are encouraged to refrain from parking on local streets to allow for more effective plowing operations.
