CLEVELAND - Cleveland snow crews continue clearing main roads throughout the city, as the forecast calls for another two inches of the white stuff Sunday.
In all, 38 plows are salting and clearing the main roads, with the hope to reach residential areas by 8 p.m. Sunday and continuing overnight.
The city has more than 6,000 tons of salt on hand and over 20,000 gallons of environmentally friendly liquid de-icer to cover 53 routes around Cleveland.
The division of streets sayd the goal is to have all streets serviced within 24-36 hours from when snow stops falling, depending on the actual amount of snowfall.
"Work will be ongoing until main thoroughfares are clear and residential streets are serviced," said a spokesperson in a news release.
Primary and secondary roads throughout the city are said to be in fair condition with traffic moving as usual.
A parking ban remains in effect throughout Cleveland. Parking is prohibited on streets marked with red and white snow ban signs. The streets division recommends the following:
- Park off-street whenever possible to give snow plows the ability to plow streets curb-to-curb
- Stay off the streets as much as possible for your own personal safety and to allow snow plows greater access to the city's roadways
Residents with snow removal concerns can call (216) 664-2510.
