Roanoke, VA – In response to the National Weather Service’s snow forecast in the Roanoke area beginning this weekend, the city reminds residents to take the following precautions to prepare for winter weather conditions.
If snow accumulates on streets, the city will aim to clear 95% of the snow from major streets and Valley Metro bus routes within 24 hours after snowfall ends. Once that is accomplished, snow removal crews will aim to clear 90% of neighborhood streets cleared within the following 24 hours.
To help speed up the snow removal process, please park vehicles in a driveway or on one side of the street - the side with odd-numbered houses. This ensures that the plows will have enough room to effectively, and safely, clear your neighborhood street.
During a major snow event, nine City departments and more than 150 employees will work together around the clock to help minimize the storm’s impact on the community.
