Snow removal efforts are still underway to clear the 25 inches of snow that fell over nine consecutive days in the Naperville area. Due to the large volume of snow that must be cleared, a 10-person Public Works crew will continue snow removal in the downtown streets and parking lots starting at 10:30 p.m. tonight through 6:30 a.m. tomorrow, February 14.
Snow removal in the train station parking lots will begin once removal in the downtown area is complete. At this time, it is anticipated that snow removal in the Naperville train station parking lot will occur during the overnight hours of February 14 into February 15. Snow removal for the Route 59 train station parking lot is expected to occur over the overnight hours of February 15 into February 16. As such, commuters are advised that snow piles will still be present in these areas over the next few days, which may reduce the number of parking spaces through the end of the week.
As a reminder, it is the responsibility of residents and property owners to keep the sidewalks in front of their homes and buildings free of both snow and ice at all times for pedestrian safety. Please remember to shovel a three-foot perimeter around fire hydrants and a path to the hydrant from the street, which will allow quick access in the event of an emergency.
