Winter Storm Update: Dec. 29, 2015

Public Works crews have been out in full force for over 24 hours due to a winter storm that produced a rare and large amount of sleet and ice. This type of heavy precipitation has brought with it a unique set of challenges.

The biggest factor is the weight of the wet ice, which requires trucks to plow slower than usual. Slow speeds are required but may produce larger chunks of snow and ice that come off the ends of plows. Per the Village’s snow plan, crews prioritized main roads before moving into interior streets. As of this morning, crews have successfully cleared Village streets and two wheel loaders are clearing cul-de-sacs. Drivers are currently out cleaning specific areas that are in need of additional attention, and are working on removing the windrows on St. Charles Rd., Main St., and Westmore-Meyers Ave., before the snow re-freezes later this evening. Please note that State and County Roads are not maintained by the Village and are monitored by their perspective agencies.

As the ice and snow melts, drivers should be mindful of standing water on road surfaces. The weather for Wednesday, 12/30 calls for possible snow flurries and colder temperatures, which are expected to increase the amount of ice. Public Works crews have increased their anti-icing efforts in preparation and will be salting roads to help improve conditions. Please use caution while driving.
