5:52AM, Thursday October 31 Snow Removal Update From Peoria Public Works

Please see the below update from Sie Maroon, Deputy Director of Streets

Good morning!  Winter has fallen upon us.  FYI.  Peoria has not seen snow on Halloween since 1918. (Just a little history for you).  Currently we are experiencing a variety of precipitation including rain mixed with snow.  Road conditions are mostly wet this morning, but there is some slush build up on various streets throughout the city.  However, the precipitation is expected to change to all snow as the day moves on.  Peoria is in the 1-3” range for today, but the current rain fall is helping melt the initial snow amounts.  The City of Peoria Snow Fighters are out this morning for the rush hour commute monitoring streets to apply the treatment that they need to make travel safe.  We are out with full coverage on all primary arterial snow routes throughout the city.  We will maintain these streets until the snow stops falling and the streets are in good condition for travel.  As you encounter any snow plow/salt trucks in you travels, we encourage motorists to give plenty of space and exercise patience.  As a reminder, we will not plow residential areas until we have reached two inches of snow accumulation on the pavement.


Have a good day, travel with caution and be safe!

I have been involved with publishing and marketing for the past 37 years. My passion is helping people share their voice. I am able to do this through two important venues: One, with Area-Info.net where people can share everything from opinions to events to news. It is your choice! What do you want to share? Two, through a new program called America's Real Deal I am involved with to help business owners get their voice heard. For people who love to save money and earn while saving, there is a new program called the r network. You are provided with a card that entitles the user to automatic savings on more than 300,000 products. Learn more about the revv card today. This is by invitation only to be some of the first people to get this card. I schedule speaking engagements with community groups and business groups to share my passion about the importance of "sharing your voice".
