The City of Dearborn has given the all-clear for the snow emergency declared on Jan. 1, but will reinstate it again at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 2.

As of 3 p.m. on Thursday, city crews had spent 40 hours of snow plowing time, tending to major roads twice, and plowing all residential roads once.

But in many cases, blowing snow and ongoing snowfall covered the roads after the first plowing. To keep drivers safe, streets need to be plowed again.

Sirens announcing the second snow emergency will sound at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. It is expected to last at least through the morning of Friday, Jan. 3.

All parked vehicles must be removed from the roads by 9 p.m. to allow for safer and more effective snow plowing. Vehicles parked in the street after 9 p.m. may be ticketed and/or towed.

With Dearborn students going back to school starting Monday, Jan. 6, and the possibility of more snowfall this weekend, city crews must clear the roads entirely by Friday.
