Bismarck Roads and Streets Division Snow Emergency Operations Update (4/15/22 9:58 AM)
BISMARCK, N.D. – City of Bismarck Roads and Streets crews began plowing major routes and residential streets last night at 8 P.M. The city is using all available equipment and Bismarck Public Schools is assisting with equipment and operators. Roads and Streets crews will make two plow passes down the street center to allow for vehicles to pass in opposing lanes, to speed up the opening of the city and continue plowing 24/7 until the city is open. A front-end loader will follow pushing an opening in the heavy snow ridge in front of homes to help residents exit from their driveways.
Once the entire city has been opened, Roads and Streets crews will return to residential areas and push the snow over towards the curb to open up the parking lanes. Extreme high winds, heavy, wet snow, and blizzard conditions have continued to be an issue with this storm and it is taking three times longer than normal to plow streets.
Please wait for the front-end loader to make an opening for your driveway before you try shoveling the heavy snow ridge. We realize that there will be additional shoveling or snow blowing in the street to reach the driveway opening, but it should be less strenuous than shoveling the snow bank left by the center line plow.
If you haven’t removed your vehicle from the street, now is the time to do so or it will be extremely difficult to dig out of the snow bank created by the plows. We ask citizens for their continued patience and cooperation during this significant snow event.
