The National Weather Service predicts 10 to 16 inches of snow will fall along Chicago’s north lakefront between now and Sunday morning.

The City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation already has activated some of its snow plow fleet so they are in position when snow starts to fall. Additional resources will be deployed as needed throughout the storm.

Please note that plows clear the arterial streets continuously during any winter storm. Only after the snowfall stops do they move onto the side streets.

As we are expecting constant snowfall throughout tonight and tomorrow, the side streets will experience considerable snow accumulation for most of Friday. Do not expect to see any snow plows on the side streets until after the snow ceases to fall and the arterial streets are clear.

I would like to thank everyone who dutifully has cleared their sidewalk this winter. It is the responsibility of every resident or business/property owner to ensure that the sidewalk adjacent to their property is clear of snow. Please report unshoveled sidewalks to my office at ward49@cityofchicago.org or 773-338-5796.

    Living in a winter wonderland!!! How's the snow on the pier? We're a bit slammed on Eastlake as usual.

  • Happy to see an Alderman not only doing their job but taking a proactive approach towards keeping the residents up to date during this snowstorm. Someone should tell that to the 50th ward. Seems they took a snow day and could care less that most of the residents of her ward cant even move their cars. The snow has been stopped for hours now and as of 5:30pm no one has come by to plow our street, which is highly travelled. I wish I could say this was a one time thing, but this was also the case Tuesday after snow fell Monday. Many of the streets running north to south between Kedsie and California bordered by Devon and Peterson were not plowed for the whole day. Seems today is no different. Makes me wonder why I'm paying 29 separate taxes to live in this city. Nonetheless, bravo to the Alderman of the 49th district, at least you showed up to work today.
