City of Naperville Update: 7AM Tuesday, Jan. 9
About 1 to 1.5 inches of wet, slushy snow fell overnight in Naperville. Snow is predicted to turn to rain this morning. Public Works crews have finished salting City streets and removing snow from major roadways and are now starting work on priority neighborhood thoroughfares. They will continue their work until snow removal operations are complete. Refer to the snow removal map for progress updates.
Neighborhood streets that have not yet been plowed are slushy. Please use caution when navigating. Reduce your speed, increase following distance between your vehicle and others, including snow plows, and plan for extra time to get to your destination.
Please do not park on City streets to allow snowplows space to treat roadways. Be careful walking on sidewalks, train station platforms, and in parking lots, which all may be slippery.
As a reminder, when shoveling your driveway, do not shovel snow into the street and, once snowfall ends, please plan to remove snow from sidewalks within 48 hours.
