UPDATE ON SNOW EVENT (Feb 7 @7:00am)
Feb 7, 2017 - 7:00am -- Update on current conditions.
Temps today should reach about 40F which will be very helpful...
Crews were out last night working on the secondary roads, since we know many residents are having trouble getting to the main roads still. (The City also has to make sure crews can reach all sewer pump stations, and other City infrastructure, in case they lose power and need fuel for backup generators.) You can see plow and sand routes at: www.mercergov.org/snowplow
If you see a problem area that you think the City may not know about, call the Public Works hotline:
East Mercer Way is still closed at 5400 Block; and other scattered closures remain too.
MISD Schools are again closed today.
The City's Community and Event Center will be open as a warming facility today under normal operating hours: 7:00am-9:00pm. Classes there are canceled, but rentals will proceed.
More info to come in the next few hours as we survey conditions.
Drive cautiously there are still icy patches!
