A list of the city’s emergency snow routes

The Winter Storm Warning continues to be in effect, with 6-10 inches of snow expected to fall throughout Kansas City today. The City urges residents to take precautions during this snow event and avoid driving in these hazardous conditions

Residents are advised that parking cars off-street during snow plow operations greatly enhances the ability of snow plows to remove snow, especially in cul-de-sacs and dead end streets. If a vehicle must park on-street, the following parking practice is being requested:

-On streets that run north/south, park vehicles on the west side of the street.
-On streets that run east/west, park vehicles on the north side of the street.

Please note, vehicles without adequate tire tread that get stuck on a major thoroughfare will be ticketed and towed. Tow storage lot fees will apply.
