Winter Storm Warning - January 11, 2024

Categories: Streets & Sanitation

The City of Sheboygan Department of Public Works prepares for another winter storm. The National Weather Service has posted a Winter Storm Warning for the Sheboygan area beginning Friday morning extending through mid-day Saturday. The approaching weather system is predicted to bring substantial snowfall and high winds to the area.

This weather system will impact travel Friday morning through Saturday morning as periods of heavy snowfall and strong winds will create hazardous travel conditions.

As the Department of Public Works completes the cleanup from Thursday’s early morning snowfall, preparations have begun for the next weather event. Plow crews will be scheduled 24/7 through the weekend until cleanup operations are completed.

During periods of heavy snowfall, plow truck operators will remain focused on keeping the primary / heavily traveled streets clear. This means secondary streets, such as neighborhood streets, may not be plowed immediately during the event. Final cleanup will be completed once the snowfall subsides.

Please be patient. Heavy snowfall also slows down the plowing operation and it will take substantial time to clear all City Streets once the storm has passed.

Following these guidelines will aid the Department in snow clearing operations;

  • Plan accordingly. If you need to be traveling somewhere, please slow down!
  • Follow overnight winter parking regulations by alternating parking. Remember; “Park for Tomorrow”.
  • To avoid having your vehicle “plowed in” and to aid in clearing of the street, park vehicles off-street (driveways) when possible.
  • Do not blow or shovel snow back into the street.
  • Be good a neighbor and clear sidewalk within 48 hours after the snow stops falling.

“Don’t Crowd the Plow”.

Keep our plow truck drivers safe and on the road by providing 75 feet clearance so they are able to safely remove the snow.
