Pending Traffic Emergency Due To Snow

The City of Kirksville is closely monitoring the weather forecast for today and tomorrow. If the current forecast of 3 to 8 inches of total snow accumulation, or more, remains in place, then a Traffic Emergency due to snow will likely be declared. When a Traffic Emergency due to snow is declared, all vehicles parked on designated Emergency Snow Routes, including City streets in the Downtown, or Central Business District, must be moved within two hours following notification. If vehicles are not moved, they will be towed. The Traffic Emergency will remain in place until terminated which is usually about eight hours following the end of snowfall. If snow accumulations increase, the Traffic Emergency may be extended to allow City crews sufficient time for snow removal. I’m Karen Johnson.
