For the first time this winter season, meteorologists are predicting some level of snowfall for the Sedalia area along with extreme cold.

While the amount of snowfall predicted varies from a trace to a few inches, the Public Works Department wanted to remind residents not to park along Emergency Snow Routes once the City has declared a snow emergency.

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).
