The Public Works Department is preparing to plow roads and alleyways as travel could become difficult. Due to the essential business and stay-at-home order, the Department anticipates reduced pedestrian and vehicle traffic, however, drivers who do need to get out should allow for extra time on their drive as roads are expected to be snow-covered.

Drivers can keep watch on the weather on the National Weather Service website and find the latest road conditions online at gettingaroundillinois.com.
