If you have a car, make certain you are not parked in a TOW ZONE. Many streets become tow zones when snow accumulations reach two [2] inches or more.

Remember, Chicago has more than 9,300 lane miles of roads to clear every snow storm. They use a fleet of 278 snow plows.

The total lane mileage is the equivalent of traveling from Chicago to Sydney Australia every snow fall - at low speeds, in sometimes blinding conditions.

The first priority for the snow plows is Lake Shore Drive and the arterials. Then the secondary streets are plowed.

Side streets are always plowed LAST.

The City of Chicago is NOT responsible for expressways. That is the responsibility of the State of Illinois.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Neighbors, how's the snow situation on your block?

  • What are the snow removal and salting guidelines for apartment building owners with regard to steps and walkways on the back of buildings? Is this the tenants responsibility?
