UPDATE: The City of Rockford Snow Emergency Declaration is in effect until 3:00 p.m. today, Monday, December 9th and vehicles should be parked on the odd numbered side of the street so that the plows can safely go down the streets.
The city is reporting that contractors have completed plowing all residential routes and crews are continuing to work on salting the residential streets.
We're reminded to follow at a safe distance behind snowplows that way salt that is being spread will be less likely to hit your car and the added distance also allows a driver room to back up if needed.
