Columbia Public Works Asking Residents to Clear Snow Routes
COLUMBIA - Columbia Public Works is asking residents to start moving vehicles off the city's priority snow routes in anticipation of possible accumulating snowfall Wednesday and Thursday.
Public Works said moving vehicles from priority snow routes will increase the efficiency of road crews as they work to keep Columbia streets passable. Public Works also encourages its customers to sign up for priority snow route alerts at Nixle.com and check the notification box for "Columbia Public Works."
Columbia Public Works will have a partial crew report at 3 p.m. Wednesday to load salt and double check equipment. A full crew will report at 7 p.m. to treat, plow and react to changing roadway conditions.
Public Works will activate its Incident Command System (ICS) at 3 p.m Wednesday and another update will be posted afterwards.
Public Works said people can monitor its activities and road conditions via its social media feeds or on its new website.
