City Making Progress On Snow Removal

As Omahans continue to dig out from yesterday's blizzard, city officials say they have made a lot of progress since Sunday. Mayor Jean Stothert said late Monday morning that "at this point, all streets have been plowed, and many main roads are plowed to pavement."

She says remaining snowpack and ice are not reacting to salt due to below zero temps overnight. "So we're using liquid calcium chloride today to get the ice to break in trouble locations on main and secondary streets."

On residential streets crews are spreading sand. "We plan to pick up snow piles in the middle of the downtown, Dodge and Maple locations beginning Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. This is a day later than first planned," Stothert says.

Stothert asks residents report specific streets of concern to the Mayor's Hotline at 402-444-5555 so a service request can be completed.
