Winter Weather Update February 15, 2023

Categories: Streets & Sanitation

A Winter Weather Advisory / Winter Storm Watch has been posted for the Sheboygan area beginning 9:00AM on Thursday February 16th extending through 9:00PM on Thursday, February 16th. Current predictions include 3 to 7 inches of snowfall.

The City of Sheboygan Department of Public Works (DPW) began preparations for this winter event. Operators have been applying liquid brine to the primary / heavily traveled streets throughout the day today. Applying this brine solution will aid in the prevention of ice and snow from bonding to the pavement allowing for a more efficient removal.

During periods of heavy snowfall, plow truck operators will remain focused on keeping the primary / heavily traveled streets clear. During long duration snowfalls, the Department will make every effort to clear neighborhood streets at strategic times (end of work day and/or start of work day). This may include a single pass down the center of the street if heavy snowfall continues. Final cleanup will be completed once the snowfall subsides.

Please be patient, the Department’s 12 plow trucks cannot be everywhere at one time and work to clear all City streets will take some time. Crews will work throughout the evening until all City streets have been cleared.

Residents can assist the Department by following these guidelines:

  • If possible, park vehicles off-street in driveways.
  • Follow overnight winter parking regulations by alternating parking. Remember, “Park for Tomorrow”.
  • Do not blow or shovel snow back into the street.
  • Please allow room for the plow trucks to work safely by staying back a minimum of 75 feet from all DPW plow trucks.
  • Be good a neighbor and clear sidewalks within 48 hours after the snow stops falling.
