[ARCHIVED] City of Bismarck Public Works Begins Clearing Snow Downtown

City of Bismarck Public Works Service Operations has finished its initial snow-plowing efforts on all city streets. Crews have started clearing snow in the downtown area and widening the snow emergency routes. 


“We are also going back through the residential neighborhoods to widen those roadways,” said Public Works Service Operations Director Steve Salwei. “Along with that process, we’ll be cleaning and widening driveway entrances and cleaning around cluster mailboxes.”


Bismarck residents are reminded they are responsible for cleaning around individual mailboxes. It is illegal to shovel or blow snow into the street. 


“We are appreciative of everyone’s patience as our crews have moved snow and opened up routes throughout Bismarck,” said Salwei. “The storm created a lot of snow, and it is taking longer than a more normal snow event.” 


 Public Works will be removing snow in the Bismarck downtown “No-Parking – Street Cleaning” signed areas overnight tonight from midnight to 7 a.m. (Thursday, November 17), as well as on East-West streets and alleys in that area. Individuals and businesses are asked to move vehicles off the street and keep them off the streets as indicated on the signs. Businesses along these signed street cleaning areas, that have not already been cleaned, should have their sidewalks cleaned before midnight on their designated day. Bismarck Police Department will be towing any vehicles parked on these streets.
