The head of Evanston’s snow removal efforts says we got four inches of snow overnight, and more is on the way.

Assistant Public Works Director James Maiworm says there was a pause in the snowfall after midnight that let crews plow and salt all the main streets and secondaries and begin plowing residential streets.

But the snow started up again around dawn and an additional three inches of snow is expected before it tapers off by 4 or 5 p.m.

Overnight tonight lake effect snow will begin around 1 a.m. Thursday and continue falling until 5 p.m. Thursday. An additional three inches is likely but heavier amounts are very possible.

Maiworm says public works has additional drivers on duty today to be able to work not only on the main streets but residential streets as well. “Plowing curb to curb on all streets will be the operational objective for today,” he says.
