The City of Harrisburg is preparing for a possible snowstorm beginning Wednesday, and residents are advised to pay close attention to weather updates throughout the week.
By special arrangement with Park Harrisburg, residents can park without charge at the Locust Street Garage, located at 214 Locust Street, beginning at noon on Wednesday, December 16th, and through the afternoon of Thursday, December 17th.
Weather predictions call for heavy snowfall that could exceed 12 inches. The Public Works Department has 16 trucks that will be deployed throughout the City to keep major roads clear.
Residents should obey all street signs to ensure Public Works crews can keep streets plowed and can remove snow as quickly as possible. Vehicles should be parked as close to the curb as possible, and away from intersections to allow trucks easy access to clear streets.
Mayor Eric Papenfuse is advising residents to avoid driving if road conditions become hazardous.
