Winter Storm Information from the City of Prescott

Snow is expected to continue for a few more hours today. Numerous accidents have been reported. 

Residents are reminded to avoid driving during winter weather conditions if possible

For those planning travel today, be prepared for winter driving conditions throughout the area. 

The Street Maintenance Division will have trucks plowing throughout the event.

Residents are reminded that streets are plowed in order of priority, with major roads first, and these priority streets are plowed continuously until they remain passable for public safety vehicles and other traffic. 

This means that depending on the storm’s duration and intensity, residential (local) streets may not be plowed for a day or two after the storm has ended. Snow plow operators work continuously on 12 hours shifts once a storm hits until the snow is removed.
