Effective immediately, Eugene Public Works has declared an ice-snow emergency due to this morning’s snow showers. Snow continues to accumulate and road conditions are deteriorating quickly. Drivers are urged to stay home.
During ice-snow emergencies, on street parking on priority transportation routes is banned. The ban allows emergency vehicles and snow-removal equipment to travel safely on roadways to respond to emergency situations.
Public Works has crews dedicated to making the streets passable and will focus on priority routes for the morning commute. For more on ice-snow emergencies and priority routes, go to www.eugene-or.gov/snow.
