DAVENPORT, IOWA (January 29, 2019) — Earlier this morning, Public Works crews temporarily returned to Posted Snow Routes due to a recent dusting and significant blowing and drifting that is occurring. Teams will finish clearing residential streets later this morning/early afternoon. Once residential roads are clear, crews will re-run and spot clear routes across the city.

Slick road conditions are possible in areas where blowing and drifting is occurring.

Please be reminded solid waste will not be collected on Wednesday. Collection will be one day late the remainder of the week; Wednesday's collection will happen on Thursday, Thursday's collection will happen on Friday, and Friday's collection will happen on Saturday.

I anticipate having another update for you this afternoon.

Stay safe.
