Here’s is the latest from the City of Plano regarding the winter weather.
Most major streets and thoroughfares are slushy and passable. Neighborhood streets and alleys are still iced over.
Ten sanding trucks are still on Plano roadways. They’re focusing on bridges and trouble spots.
Although the weather is improving, side streets, facility sidewalks and parking lots remain a concern. For the safety of all, recreation facilities and programs will be closed today. Make up classes or a refund will be provided. The city aims to return to normal hours of operation on Friday. If that should change, an email will be sent out. To stay up-to-date with hours of operation, residents can check planoparks.org or the city’s Facebook page before heading to any recreation facility. Parks and recreation will post delayed openings and/or closings as soon as possible.
Library locations (including book drops) will remain closed today.
Environmental Waste Services is going to delay collections. Their plan is to re-evaluate alley conditions later this morning to determine if collections can start around noon. The EWS supervisors found low hanging limbs and icy conditions earlier this morning when they inspected their routes.
