Snow Removal Operation in Downtown Set for Tonight
Snow Emergency Remains in Effect
BRIDGEPORT, CT (February 5, 2014) – City Public Works crew will be removing snow from downtown Bridgeport streets to clear major roads and sidewalks in preparation for the next predicted storm, which is expected to hit the Bridgeport area this weekend.
Beginning at 10 p.m. tonight (Wednesday), City crews will begin removing snow in the area from Lafayette Boulevard to Water Street and from Frontage Roads to Congress Street.
“As a transportation hub and the home to numerous businesses, local, state and federal government agencies, and hundreds of residents, it is critical that we keep our downtown neighborhood clear and passable for drivers and pedestrians,” said Mayor Finch. “Crews will work throughout the night tonight to ensure our downtown is ready for business as usual tomorrow morning.”
The Snow Emergency remains in effect, and vehicles must be moved off marked Snow Emergency routes. Main, Congress, Golden Hill, John, Main, Broad and State streets and Fairfield Avenue and Lafayette Boulevard are Snow Emergency streets. A full list of Snow Emergency streets can be found on the City’s website — http://www.bridgeportct.gov/
Residents should move their cars to the odd-numbered side of the street tonight by 7 p.m., so crews can continue to clear the even-numbered side of the street.
During the storm, residents with non-emergency, weather-related questions or concerns should call the City’s BConnected Call Center at 203.576.1311 or the Emergency Operations Center at 203.579.3829. Residents can use the City’s BConnected request system online at www.bridgeportct.gov/
