Security Measure

Snow Headquarters

When the snow falls, your safety on the streets is our top priority. Whether an inch of ice or 2 feet of snow, our Municipal Services crews know how to respond when inclement weather becomes an issue. 

During a major storm, we will issue periodic updates regarding our winter weather operations on this page.  

Latest Updates

8:30 a.m.
Crews will continue to treat roads throughout the day. The low temperatures and wind chills will be hard for treatment to be as effective as it could be, but roads will still be treated.

January 10, 2020 

7:45 p.m.
Crews are out treating roadways. We're hoping to get all streets treated before the predicted snowfall. 

7:50 a.m.
We will begin working 12-hour shifts at noon today and well into the weekend. Crews will be out during the evening commute in preparation for a combination of freezing rain, sleet and snow. We will try to get all roads treated during the ice event before it starts snowing. If we get as much snow as forecasted, we will be plowing all roads by Saturday morning.

Drivers should take caution on their way home this evening and Saturday.

December 16, 2019 

8:15 p.m.
We are expecting freezing fog Tuesday morning so we will have crews in at 4 a.m. to treat slick spots. Be sure to take it slow on your morning commute tomorrow. Do not trust roadways that appear to be treated, as untreated bridges and elevated surfaces will be slick.

1:00 p.m. 
Crews are back out treating bridges and some residential areas after this latest burst of snow. 

8:30 a.m. 
All main roads are open and cleared. Crews are now working in residential areas to make sure all roads are plowed and treated. We are watching the weather closely and will continue to treat roads as necessary.

We appreciate your patience while we complete the plowing process. If after that time you feel your street has been missed, please let us know through our Lenexa 311 Service Request

December 15, 2019 

4:30 p.m. 
Crews are continuing to plow arterial roads and into some residential areas. Right now, the focus is to stay on major roads with the snow continuing to fall. We have had some moderate bursts of snow which is creating a lot of issues with treatment and trying to stay ahead of the storm.

We will be changing crews at midnight and continue on our 12-hour shifts until all roads are plowed and treated. Our goal is to have all streets cleared 48 hours after it ends snowing. Please be patient.

10:30 a.m. 
We’ve got crews out treating the roads ready to move into plowing operations. They will continue working 12-hour shifts until all roads are treated and clear.

Please be patient as the snow is expected to be heavy at times with another round coming in Monday morning through the afternoon.

December 14, 2019 

5 p.m. 
We will be bringing in a full shift starting at 6 a.m. tomorrow for snow. We will begin working 12-hour shifts (noon to midnight and midnight to noon) for the next couple of days.

Major roads will be cleared first and then we will move into the residential areas. This is the first real snow storm of the season, so a reminder to take it slow and to stay home, if at all possible.

9 p.m.

We will have a small crew out at 4:00 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29 to treat bridges due to refreeze overnight. This is a reminder to take it slow when driving on the streets, as there might be some isolated slick spots in the morning.

With the potential of scattered rain showers turning into a rain-snow mix this evening, drivers should exercise caution on bridges and other elevated surfaces overnight into tomorrow, as they may become slick.
