Winter is here and Lexington is prepared to keep local streets clear of snow and ice. The annually-updated Snow and Ice Control Plan is the master document setting forth responsibilities and priorities for this effort. The 2014-2015 plan is now available online (18-page PDF, 1.7 MB). If you were wondering how many plow trucks LFUCG has available for this winter, what those Snow Emergency Route signs mean, or what determined the time your street was be treated and plowed yesterday, check it out.
(The answer to the plow truck question is 46.)
We hope we won’t need this material again this winter, but the plan also explains Lexington’s three stages of snow emergency:
|Stage 1||No parking will be permitted on designated snow emergency routes.|
|Stage 2||No parking permitted on designated snow emergency routes plus parking restrictions on residential roads. Parking permitted on alternate sides of|
the street ‐ even house numbered side on even numbered days and odd numbered side on odd numbered days.
|Stage 3||No travel permitted on designated snow emergency routes unless vehicle is equipped with snow tires, tire chains, or four‐wheel drive, or is an emergency vehicle or vehicle approved by the Mayor.|
