Bismarck Officials Declare Snow Emergency

Posted:

City of Bismarck--The City of Bismarck has declared a "Snow Emergency" and all snow emergency routes are included in this emergency declaration. Parking is prohibited and all vehicles must be removed from snow emergency routes effective immediately.

 

The City Roads and Streets Department have been plowing the snow emergency routes since 4:00 a.m. Crews will be working 24 hours a day, on emergency routes and major arterial streets to keep them open. We anticipate that the City will continue to plow the emergency and major arterial streets all day Sunday and into Monday morning until the snow and wind subside.

 Once the blizzard is over and emergency routes and major arterial streets are open, residential streets will begin to be plowed. Snow gates are still being used, when possible, but due to the already accumulated ten inches of snow, it is difficult to plow and keep the snow in the gate.

We ask the citizens work with their neighbors to open up driveways and mailboxes.

We want to thank the citizens and business for their cooperation during this spring blizzard.

To view the snow emergency routes and snow removal map go to the City's website, www.bismark.org. Under Departments, click on Public Works. On the right side of the Public Works page are Quick Links to these items.
