Naperville winter operations update: Jan. 1 at 10:30AM


Naperville is under a Winter Storm Warning for 4 to 8 inches of snowfall today, Jan. 1, through 6AM Sunday morning. In addition to snowfall, gusty winds that may reduce visibility are expected, especially after sunset this evening.

Public Works crews began salting roadways around 9AM and will continually salt and plow roadways throughout the storm and after until all operations are complete. Due to the expected rate of snowfall and duration of this event, snow plowing will take several rounds and roads will remain snow covered and slushy throughout the rest of the day and tomorrow morning. Be patient as crews work to treat roadways. Also, do not park on City streets once winter weather begins so that plow trucks can efficiently treat roadways.

As a reminder, crews begin plowing when 2 inches of snow has fallen, and the priority plowing system focuses on major roadways first, followed by residential streets, then cul-de-sacs, alleys, and dead-end streets, which require more time to perform snow removal while minimizing impacts to driveways.

Difficult travel due to snowfall and blowing snow is expected. Use extreme caution if you must travel. Reduce your speed and increase following distance between your vehicle and others, including snow plows and leave extra time to get to your destination. Be careful walking on sidewalks, train station platforms, and in parking lots, which all may be slippery.
