[ARCHIVED] Inclement Weather Updates

Public Works crews continue to work on clearing priority one routes. They will be working on priority two and three routes throughout the night.


The City’s tree crews are diligently working to respond to over 60 downed tree reports. They’ve stayed focused on clearing streets and removing hazards. They will return to chip and haul away trees in the coming days. Homeowners  working on their own tree issues are asked to help keep roads clear by not placing debris and vegetation from their property in the City right of way.


Melting snow and freezing temps overnight mean very icy roads tonight and into the morning, the public should exercise extreme caution and avoiding driving if possible. The City’s ice/snow emergency declaration remains in effect. The emergency declaration means all vehicles must be removed immediately from designated snow emergency routes. 


The City’s ice/snow ordinance prohibits parking along streets designated as snow emergency routes while a snow/ice emergency is in effect. Typically, emergency routes are collectors, arterials, and bus routes.       


The parking ban will remain in effect until further notification.  Listen to local radio and television stations for regular updates.  f you have questions about which streets are emergency routes and subject to the parking ban, call 682-4800, or see www.eugene-or.gov/snow.
