(Neb)-Winter Storm Warning Brings Chadron Snow Emergencies
CHADRON - The city of Chadron has declared a snow emergency for the next two mornings from 2:30 to 8:00 or until the streets are cleared.
Under a snow emergency, all vehicles must be off the five designated emergency snow routes during the hours of the emergency of will be towed.
Chadron's snow emergency routes are Main Street from 1st to 5th, Chadron Avenue from 1st to 3rd, Morehead between 2nd and 3rd, 2nd Street from Bordeaux to Morehead, and 3rd Street/Highway 20 from King to Mears.
The city calls snow emergencies to make it easier for plows on the streets making up the snow routes to go curb to curb without having to maneuver around parked vehicles.
Chadron Public Works Director Milo Rust says they decided to go ahead and issue an emergency for Saturday even though only an inch or so of snow is expected by dawn so that the parking areas would still be clear if the heavy snow predicted later in the arrives a little early.
