Snowplowing Update 1-11-18 & 1-12-18
Coon Rapids snowplow crews have been out today, plowing and maintaining main City streets and secondary streets.
With anywhere from one to four inches of snow predicted, and continued blowing and drifting snow this afternoon and evening, crews are planning to go out into neighborhoods starting around 3 a.m. Friday morning to clean up residential streets. Please remove any cars that may be parked on the street. Crews expect to begin plowing City sidewalks after street plowing is complete.
Winter parking reminder: Winter parking restrictions are in effect until April 1. This means vehicles cannot be parked on the street anytime between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. each night. Parking is also prohibited on public streets anytime there is an accumulation of three inches of snow, or until the street has been plowed from curb-to-curb. Once the snowplow has gone by, and the street has been thoroughly cleaned from curb-to-curb, parking can resume.
Garbage and recycling can rules: If it is your garbage day on Friday, please help our snowplow drivers by putting your garbage and recycling carts behind the curb and not in the street. This is required by City Code and it helps to keep the streets free of obstructions so the plow can go by and clean thoroughly.
Keep in mind snowplow operations may change if weather conditions change. This information is meant to give residents a general idea of what to expect with snowplowing operations that involve neighborhood street plowing, which occurs when snow totals are three inches or more.
