The City of Sedalia’s Public Works Department wanted to remind residents not to park along Emergency Snow Routes during snow emergencies.

Emergency Snow Routes help improve traffic flow after a storm by declaring a parking ban along the designated routes to expedite snow clearing.

When more than two inches of snow/sleet/ice is expected within a 24-hour period, the City declares a snow emergency and the Emergency Snow Routes are put into effect. Parking is prohibited along Emergency Snow Routes once the snow emergency occurs.

The Street Department works to keep these designated streets as clear as possible to allow for emergency vehicle use.

The map below details which city streets are designated Emergency Snow Routes as well as those designated by the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
