City of Cleveland’s Winter Weather Update – Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 9:30 AM

Thursday, February 5, 2015

CLEVELAND – As of 3:00 am this morning, the Department of Public Works has 51 snow plows and 10 road graders servicing residential streets. The snow removal fleet will focus on clearing residential roads until 4:00 pm today when the street conditions will be reassessed.

At this time, the Department of Public Works reports that there is 9,600 tons of salt available for roads, bridges, and hills. If you have snow removal concerns, please contact 216-664-2510.

Key points to remember:

  • A parking ban that went into effect at 9:00 pm on Wednesday, February 4, will be lifted as of 10:00 am on Thursday, February 5, 2015.
  • The City of Cleveland is requesting voluntary compliance from residents who park on streets that are not included in the ban. Parking off street, whenever possible, helps ensure that plows can service the entire width of the street – curb-to-curb.
  • If you must travel, use caution, allow extra time, and remember not to “block the box” at intersections.
  • If you live with or near an elderly person, regularly check on these vulnerable citizens to ensure that they are warm, fed, and safe.
