UPDATE – January 29th @ 4:45 PM – Post Snow Status Update in The City of Frederick
City Snow Removal Operations to Cease for the Weekend
January 29, 2016 @ 4:45 PM: We will cease 24 hour a day snowplow operations in The City of Frederick today, Friday, January 29. City snow crews have worked 24 hours a day in 12-hour shifts for the past 7 days to plow and move the more than 35 inches of snow that fell on the City last weekend. At this time, additional plowing is not advisable in most areas as it will bury previously cleared sidewalks, parking spaces and fire hydrants. The City will have a limited crew on standby over the weekend to salt areas that may refreeze overnight and will assign limited crews early next week to address areas with unresolved safety concerns.
Daytime temperatures are projected to be above freezing over the weekend followed by a warm front crossing into the area Tuesday into Wednesday of next week.
Residents are asked to keep downspouts and storm drains ice and snow free to prevent flooding. Organizations that have flat-roofed buildings should assess and ensure their roof drains are open and remain open to avoid roof collapses.
Drivers and pedestrians should continue exercising extreme caution and use main roads and sidewalks whenever possible and refrain from walking in streets.
