Snow Hauling Twin Lakes Road

Crews Prepping for Weekend Snow

Public Works crews continue to tackle high snow banks around the city in anticipation of tomorrow's storm. Blower hauling is the best way to improve sight lines for motorists, as shown here along Twin Lakes Road.
 
Snow removal operations will be in full effect throughout the weekend and Public Works crews are asking residents to be patient, as US National Weather Service Twin Cities Minnesota predictions are indicating tomorrow's precipitation will pose challenges not previously encountered this season. To date, we've largely received light/fluffy snowfall, which is easily pushed by plow blades over existing snowbanks. Tomorrow's snowfall is expected to be heavy, wet, and difficult to move onto existing snowbanks. Use extra caution when traveling this weekend, as roads may be narrower than usual, and cul-de-sac snow piles will be larger than ever. Please understand plow operators are not trying to fill your driveways with snow - there is simply nowhere to put it. Our ultimate goal is efficient clearing of Elk River's 184 miles of roadway to allow for the safest travel conditions possible. Once roadways have been cleared crews will once again shift their focus to hauling away snow piles to improve sight line visibility, widening roadways, and reducing cul-de-sac snow storage.
 
City staff will provide Snow Event information on Facebook, Twitter, and the Elk River website, when/if one is called resulting in overnight street parking restrictions. Have a safe weekend, everyone!
