“The city is grateful to Park Harrisburg for opening up the Locust Street Garage during this snowstorm to our residents,” said Mayor Wanda R.D. Williams. 

Any cars parked on roadways should park as close to the curb as possible and away from intersections so trucks can more easily plow the streets.

The public works department will start salting when the snow starts and is prepared to keep roads clear throughout the city.

Williams is advising residents to avoid driving if road conditions become hazardous.
