ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR) -- The City of Rockford’s Contractors began plowing Residential Routes at 3:00 PM Sunday according to city officials

The City of Rockford Public Works Department will continue plowing and salting Arterial Routes and the Snow Emergency and Odd/Even parking remain in effect.

Officials say decisions about further deployment will be made, as needed, according to developing conditions.

They urge citizens to follow at a safe distance behind snowplows. This will prevent the salt that is being spread from hitting your vehicle and the added distance also allows a driver room to back up if needed.
