City plans snow operations
JANESVILLE—Forecasters predict six or more inches of snow accumulation during daylight hours, according to a city news release.
This morning, 16 operators in plow trucks equipped with salt applicators plowed and chemically treated main roads, hills, bridges, curves, bus routes, school zones and other high priority areas.
The objective is to keep high volume, challenging roadways as free of snow and ice as possible, according to the release.
An additional seven drivers will maintain public parking lots, sidewalks and entrances to public buildings.
An additional 14 workers will be deployed late this afternoon for a citywide plowing operation.
Residential streets should be plowed late this evening and be completed between 3 and 4 a.m. Wednesday, depending on conditions.
A snow emergency was declared at noon today, which means all vehicles must be parked off the streets. Failure to do so could result in a parking ticket.
