With almost 11 inches on the ground, many around town are still managing to safely get out and enjoy the snow day, whether to sled at Rotary Hill or go for an afternoon jog.
But because snow continues to fall, residents should expect roads to remain snow covered and slushy into the evening rush hour and beyond. Currently, all 26 of the City of Naperville’s large plow trucks are in service for snow removal operations, along with 12 pick-up trucks and 32 contractors. Snow is expected to continue well into overnight hours.
In preparation for the evening rush hour, crews will return to main roadways between 3 and 3:30 p.m. Once main roads have received another treatment, crews will move back into neighborhoods and continue snow removal operations.
The city is also asking residents to shovel a three-foot perimeter around fire hydrants to ensure access in the event of an emergency.
