SIOUX CITY -- Road crews have been working since Monday morning to get streets cleared of snow after 3 to 4 inches of snow fell Monday and Tuesday.
David Carney, Sioux City's public works director, said in an email that the 12-hour day and night shifts will continue until all streets have been cleared.
Priority one (highly trafficked) streets, like Hamilton Boulevard, Morningside Avenue, Outer Drive and all downtown streets are "in decent shape," Carney said in his email.
"Crews are attacking" priority two (less-trafficked) streets, he added, and work is hopefully beginning on priority three (least-trafficked, residential) streets. Carney added he is hopeful that "real progress" will be made on priority three streets overnight Tuesday.
While the city has not formally declared a snow emergency, parking is not permitted on snow routes, which are designated by blue snowflake signs.
