Public Works crews had made at least one pass down residential streets and cul-de-sacs to create driving lanes as of 6:45 a.m. Wednesday, according to the city of Geneva website. Work was then expected to shift to curb-to-curb plowing in those areas.
Main arterial roads (Emergency Snow Routes) are in decent shape given the weather conditions, and crews will plow them as needed throughout the day.
The City's contractor was in last night plowing downtown parking lots, but likely will have to return this evening given the timing of the snow.
The Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect until noon today with moderate snow continuing throughout the morning of up to one to three inches with higher totals closer toward Lake Michigan.
The total snowfall expected for our area was adjusted to three to six inches. Strong winds could cause blowing snow, especially in open areas.
On a positive note, the city of Geneva reports 400 tons of salt was delivered to Public Works Wednesday and another similar size order is expected to arrive in the next week.
