City prepares for snowfall in Roanoke

Roanoke, Va. (WFXR News) -

The National Weather Service has forecasted snow for the Roanoke area this weekend. With this in mind, the city reminds residents of its process for snow removal.

If snow accumulates on streets, the city will aim to clear 95 percent of the snow from major streets and Valley Metro bus routes within 24 hours after snowfall ends. Once that is accomplished, snow removal crews will aim to clear 90 percent of neighborhood streets cleared within the following 24 hours.

To help speed up the snow removal process, please park vehicles in a driveway or on one side of the street, the side with odd-numbered houses. This ensures that the plows will have enough room to effectively and safely clear your neighborhood street.

The city will use its website and MyRoanoke notification system to share updates on its response to winter weather events, as well as Facebook and Twitter.
