More Snow: Grand Rapids Targets Narrow Streets for Snow Removal

plowGRAND RAPIDS, Mich (February 17, 2014) – The City of Grand Rapids will be working to remove snow and widen streets that have become too narrow for emergency vehicles and refuse vehicles while cars are parked on the street.

Monday is a holiday for many City workers, giving city plow drivers a break heading into a busy week.  The City has partnered with several Neighborhood Associations to create an emergency snow removal schedule based on reports from Police, Fire and Public Services who have identified problem areas within the city.

Residents in the areas listed below are being asked to remove their cars prior to 8:00 a.m. so plow drivers have access to move the snow.

The City says the snow removal may cause pileup on sidewalks and some drive approaches, which will have to be addressed by residents and businesses owners according to City ordinance.  Residents are also being asked to remove snow from fire hydrants in case of emergency.

    Wyoming, MI needs to do this! Wyoming has even/odd parking but people either don't know, don't care, or are ignorant of how even/odd works. Regular cars have trouble on many Wyoming streets (due to people parking on BOTH sides, across from one another), let alone fire trucks, ambulances, or trash trucks…
