GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – The city of Grand Rapids has announced its plans to clear the snow in the streets by plowing specific areas in the city for the rest of this week.

The plows will push snow back to widen the streets in areas where streets are known to be narrow.

On Wednesday, plows will be in the area between Jefferson Avenue to Eastern Avenue, Burton Street to Alger Street, Division Avenue to Eastern Avenue and Alger Street to 28th Street.

Grand Rapids officials ask residents in each area to avoid parking on these residential streets between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the days the plows are out so the roads can be widened.

If vehicles are parked, owners could get ticketed and have their vehicles towed.

City officials say that when the streets are plowed, snow may be pushed onto sidewalks and into driveways. It is the residents’ responsibility to clear those areas.

The city has also been asking residents to clear away snow and ice from catch basins to prevent flooding, and from around fire hydrants to help firefighters in the event of an emergency.
