2021/2022 Snow and Ice Event Response

With winter weather just around the corner, Davenport is making preparations for winter weather response.  Plow blades and spreaders are being installed, training conducted, and our salt supply has been replenished.

As part of winter preparation, the City encourages all residents and visitors to be prepared. This includes signing up for Snow Emergency Alerts. Signing up for alerts is the most reliable way to know when a Snow Emergency has been declared and when parking on posted snow routes is prohibited.

Snow emergencies are declared when the area is expected to receive ice and/or hazardous volumes of snow. Parking is prohibited on Posted Snow Routes when a snow emergency is declared to help Public Works crews ensure the highest traffic volume roads and hills receive priority service, which helps everyone get around when the snow starts to fly.

To subscribe, visit www.davenportiowa.com/alertiowa.  We will be conducting a test of the snow emergency alert system on Wednesday, October 20, to help you stay in the know.
