In response to the area’s winter weather, the City’s Public Works crews worked overnight and will continue efforts into Monday to clear roads, beginning with an established list of priorities. The list includes the 35 bridges located within the city limits, major thoroughfares with steep grades, parking garage entrances and major intersections. Motorists are advised to use extreme caution if they must travel on icy roads and to treat intersections without functioning traffic signals as all-way stops.
Ice and snow accumulations have resulted in downed trees, limbs and power lines. The Greenville City Fire Department is urging residents to treat all downed power lines as live and dangerous, and to avoid driving or walking near them. Report all power line hazards to Duke Energy at 1-800-777-9898 or call 911. If a tree or limb is in the right-of-way or in the street, call the City’s Public Works Department at 864-467-4335.
Greenlink public transportation has canceled service for Monday, and City Hall and City community centers will open at noon. Solid Waste will operate its regular schedule tomorrow, but will not collect yard waste.
The public is encouraged to follow the City on Facebook and Twitter and to subscribe to its Emergency Alert feature to receive critical information quickly. Weather-related information is also available on the City’s website at emergency.greenvillesc.gov.
