St. Paul streets and snow



It's not a snow emergency but people living in St. Paul are being asked to move their vehicles off the street to allow crews to remove the ice and snow that's already accumulated on the road.

On Wednesday, crews will plow east west residential streets in St. Paul from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

“We ask Saint Paul residents to help us by moving their cars on Tuesday and Wednesday so we can take full advantage of the sunshine and warmer temperatures to remove early season ice and snow. Our experience has shown when we remove ice early in the season it allows us to effectively clear the streets throughout the winter months,” said Kathy Lantry, Director of St. Paul Public Works.

“We hope to minimize the disruption for our residents by plowing during the weekday while many people are away from home.”

Officials says vehicles that are parked on these streets during plow operations will not be ticketed or towed.

St. Paul City Ordinance requires snow and ice to be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours.

Corner property owners are asked to shovel curbs, walkways and crosswalks to the street.

Where does all that snow go?

Anywhere but into the streets.  Doing that is also against city ordinances.
