The residential parking ban, snow emergency parking ban and snow removal district parking ban will all expire at 5 p.m. today. Until then, parking continues to be banned on the odd sides of residential streets as crews continue to plow in those areas this afternoon. The public can continue to report trouble areas and slick spots to the Snow Center at 402-441-7644. More information on City snow operations is available at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: snow).
The freeze-and-thaw cycle has created new potholes in the City, and Public Works and Utilities is working to repair the most hazardous ones today.
"Our crews are stretched thin today with both snow removal and pothole repair operations under way," said Miki Esposito, Public Works and Utilities Director. "Maintenance staff will be prepared for an all-out assault on potholes Monday. On behalf of our staff, I want to thank the public for cooperating with our snow removal operations and ask for their patience as we battle the potholes."
