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.

Forecast from National Weather Service (Kansas City/Pleasant Hill)

Jan. 15, 2022

9 p.m.

Crews are finishing cleaning up residential areas now. We are watching the potential for some freezing fog in the morning. We will have crews ready to respond in case that occurs. Be sure to take it slow on the roads tomorrow morning in case there are slick spots.

8:29 a.m.

Crews continue to plow and treat main arterials.  We will move into residential areas later this morning. Some may have already been started.  We will change crews out at noon and continue operations.

Jan. 14, 2022

4:30 p.m. 

With the forecasted snow, we'll bring in a crew at midnight to begin treating roads. We anticipate bringing in another crew at noon Saturday to continue operations. Wind gusts are expected to be 35 to 40 mph tomorrow which can create some blowing snow.

Please stay home if you do not need to be out & allow our crews to do what they do best — clear Lenexa roads.

Jan. 5, 2022

4 p.m. 

Crews will be out treating roads at 6 p.m. in preparation for the snow later this evening. This will give us a head start as we expect roads to be below freezing from the onset. Early treatment will also allow residential roads to have a layer of salt under them and help from creating a snow pack by the time we can get back into those areas.

Temperatures and wind chills are forecasted to be well below zero for most of the day tomorrow, creating more issues with our treatment working. We will be changing crews over at midnight to continue treating roadways into the morning hours.

9 a.m.

Crews are preparing for another round of snow beginning tonight. Snow accumulations are expected to be anywhere from 1-4 inches.

Crews will be treating roads overnight but with the forecasted low temperatures, the treatment may not be as effective. Allow extra time for your Thursday morning commute.

We will continue to treat and plow the roads as necessary.

Jan. 2, 2022

9 a.m.

All roads have been treated multiple times. We will be bringing in a small crew early Monday morning to treat the bridges and isolated slick spots again before the morning commute.

Jan. 1, 2022

9 p.m.

Crews continue to work in and around all areas. We are fighting the cold temperatures and the lingering flurries. We will continue treating roadways overnight.

12:15 p.m.

Crews have treated the entire City twice. The temperatures have and will continue to create issues with treatment working on contact. We are in the process of changing crews right now and plan to continue treating known problem areas as well as reapplying salt to roadways, as needed.

Dec. 30, 2021

11:31 a.m.

The weather forecast is calling for sleet/freezing rain to begin early Saturday morning and transition into snow for the majority of the day Saturday. We will bring crews in at midnight Saturday and begin treating all roads. We will then transition into plowing afterwards. Cold temperatures will play a major factor in our ability to treat roads Sunday with the forecast calling for -5 to -15-degree wind chills.

Our target is to have all roads cleared and treated within 48 hours after the snow has ended.

Be prepared for challenging road conditions. Stay home if you are able to. Have patience with our crews, as this is their first winter storm for the year.
