TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden has announced the City’s declared Snow Emergency has concluded, effective Thursday, December 5, 2019, at 8:00 a.m. Parking restrictions on designated Snow Emergency streets have been lifted, and regular parking rules are now in effect.

Mayor Madden said, “We are pleased with the quick and effective response to this week’s record-breaking winter storm, particularly from our Public Works, Public Utilities and operations staff who oversaw this multi-day cleanup and snow removal effort. With cooperation from our residents and business, crews were able to rapidly respond to this major snow event and keep our streets safe and clear during the storm and throughout the Snow Emergency cleanup. Additionally, we thank Governor Cuomo and New York State Department of Transportation for their assistance in clearing snow & ice from city streets in the days following the storm.”

Additional snow removal, cleanup and pushback operations will continue this week. Residents are asked to exercise caution near work zones to ensure the safety of workers. Residents are also asked to observe all normal street postings or additional posted parking restrictions.

“Crews have been deployed to neighborhoods throughout Troy for continued cleanup and snow removal work,” added Mayor Madden. “We thank the public for their patience and continued cooperation to restore streets to normal for residents, families and local businesses.”
