With more than a foot of snow already on the ground in Highland Park, between four and eight inches more could fall while a lake effect snow warning remains in effect until 3 p.m. today, according to the National Weather Service.
All Highland Park snow removal equipment is currently treating the City’s streets and hopes are it will all be cleared away eight hours after the snow stops, according to Deputy Public Works Director Bill Stewart. Cul-de-sacs and alleys will be done last because smaller equipment must be used.
“The City’s public works crews have been on the street plowing continuously since 4 p.m. (Monday),” Deputy City Manager Ghida Neukirch said today. “We have 12 trucks on the street currently. “This evening, we are planning to continue to run a shift from 8 pm until 8 am tomorrow.”
