Snow Emergency Declared for City of Livonia
A snow emergency has been declared for the City of Livonia. All vehicles must be removed from the streets by 11 p.m. Friday, March 3 under City ordinance. Vehicles not removed shall be subject to ticketing and/or towing.
Clearing the roadways of snow will result in snow piles in front of driveways, which is unavoidable. It is not possible for the City to clear individual driveways. Larger plow vehicles cannot access courts, cul-de-sacs and dead ends; smaller equipment will follow up to clear these areas.
A Winter Storm Warning issued by the National Weather Service remains in effect until 4 a.m. Saturday, March 4. Heavy, wet snow is expected. Total snow accumulations of up to 10 inches are possible. Wind gusts as high as 35 to 45 mph. Hazardous travel conditions and drastic reductions to visibility are expected under periods of heavy snow.
As road conditions are expected to be challenging, residents are urged to stay off the road if possible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food, blanket and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency. Please exercise caution when shoveling snow.
As a reminder, most major roads in Livonia are maintained by Wayne County including Ann Arbor Road, Grand River, Eight Mile, Seven Mile, Six Mile, Five Mile, Plymouth, Joy, Haggerty, Wayne south of Plymouth, Farmington, Merriman, Middlebelt and Inkster.
Livonia crews maintain Schoolcraft, Newburgh, Ann Arbor Trail, Levan, Stark, and half-mile roads such as West Chicago, Lyndon, Hubbard and neighborhood streets.
