Snow plowing will begin in Kansas City, Kan., neighborhoods during the next few hours, said a Unified Government spokesman.
Crews have been plowing the main routes, and have had to go back over them a second time because snow was falling continuously on Feb. 4 up until midnight, said Edwin Birch, UG spokesman.
He said public works officials have asked the residents to be as patient as possible about getting their residential streets plowed.
The main routes have been plowed and are being cleaned up again, with crews ready to start residential plowing this morning, he said.
The city is divided into "hot routes," secondary and neighborhood routes. The neighborhood routes are not usually plowed until the main routes are completed, he said.
Birch said the UG still has a lot of salt and sand to treat the local roads.
Residents are being asked to move cars off the emergency snow routes, or they may be towed, he said.
Trash pickup was called off today, and will be delayed a day for the rest of the week, he said.
UG staff reported early to take 311 phone calls about snow removal. The UG has an email address for snow plowing at email@example.com.
