Residents discouraged from traveling this evening and overnight

Be prepared for ice-covered streets and sidewalks as the temperature begins to dip.

Earlier Naper Notify sent out a news alert that with a freezing rain forecast and the temperature’s dropping, Naperville is under an Ice Storm Warning beginning at 6PM.

NPW crews with 22 trucks are out salting roadways to help make it safe as significant icing is expected due to freezing rain, with up to 4/10″ of ice possible. This level of icing will make travel extremely dangerous this evening and overnight. 

According to the alert issued by the City, “residents are strongly discouraged from traveling this evening and overnight. Please stay off the roads. Consider altering your evening commute to an earlier time, if possible. Public Works will be out salting through the night until conditions become too slippery for salt trucks to safely maneuver roads.

“If you must travel, use extreme caution. Slow down, leave additional distance between vehicles, and use extreme care when walking on sidewalks, in parking lots, and at the train station platforms. 

“Ice storms can cause downed tree limbs due to the weight of ice on branches.

“Please report any downed parkway tree limbs to City Dispatch at (630) 420-6187.”

From Naperville Park District regarding cancellations
