UPDATE: Janesville snow emergency lifted

UPDATE (WKOW) — The snow emergency declared in Janesville was removed early Monday morning.

The snow system tracked farther south and barely hit the city.


JANESVILLE (WKOW) — The City of Janesville has declared a snow emergency for Sunday, November 25th beginning at 7:00 P.M. A snow emergency means that all parked vehicles must be removed from city streets and public parking lots until snow plowing operations are complete.

City officials say to make sure  that you don’t  receive a parking ticket,  move your vehicle prior to 7:00 P.M. and keep  it off city streets until they have been completely plowed.

Snow and ice accumulations have been forecasted  through Monday, November 26th that will require City staff to complete a full plow.

Main and arterial streets will be maintained throughout the duration of the snowfall event. Snow accumulations are expected to taper off early on Monday morning, after which the full plow will begin and all City streets will be cleared.

The full plow is not expected to be completed until early afternoon on Monday, although every effort will be made to complete residential streets as soon as possible.

Please plan on keeping parked vehicles off the street until plows have completely removed snow from curb to curb.
