City crews install 2,300 snow emergency route signs across Duluth

DULUTH, MN -- Temperatures may have hit 80 degrees Monday, but city of Duluth workers had snow on their minds.

Crews started installing snow emergency route signs on streets across the city.

The city expects 2,300 signs across 129 miles of city streets to be installed by August.

If you live along a designated route and a snow emergency is declared, you'll have a five hour window to move your car to make way for snow plows overnight.

If you don't move your car you could be ticketed or face getting towed.

"Our intent is not to lead with that during our first snow emergency," said Jim Benning, Director of Public Works and Utilities. "There will be some education that takes place. Ultimately that is a tool that we may have to use."

The city says it will communicate snow emergencies via social media, the city of Duluth website and KBJR 6 on-air and online.
