The City of Springfield’s Office of Public Works announced that with the anticipated snow fall tonight, a Snow Emergency will be in effect on designated snow routes starting at 6:00 p.m. Friday, January 18 and ending at 6:00 a.m. Monday, January 21 . The department is anticipating in excess of 5 inches of snow.   

The public is asked to remove their parked vehicles from the marked snow emergency routes by 6:00 p.m. tonight, Friday, January 18 . To access the Snow Emergency Route Map along with the city’s Snow & Ice Removal Policy , visit www.springfield.il.us/snow .

Drivers are reminded to watch for snow removal crews and allow them room to do their work. Persons clearing private parking lots and sidewalks are reminded not to plow the snow into the streets. It is a violation of city ordinance and doing so makes unsafe driving conditions. During a severe winter storm, residents can call the Office of Public Works to report any problems or concerns at 217.789.2246.
