Harrisburg, PA – Public Works crews are preparing for the 4-6  inches of snow expected to hit the City of Harrisburg Wednesday night, said Mayor Eric Papenfuse.

“The City is well prepared to manage the predicted snowfall,” said Mayor Papenfuse, “and our Public Works staff is confident they have sufficient amounts of salt to keep the roads passable and safe.”

More than 16 trucks are standing by to clear and salt streets and bridges throughout the City.  Crews from the City’s Parks and Recreation department are also on call to assist with managing the snowfall.

The National Weather Service is predicting a minimum of 4- inches of snow that could begin around 10 p.m. Wednesday night and continue into Thursday.  But the agency also warns that the maximum amount of snowfall could be anywhere from 2-10 inches.
