Battle Creek snow emergency ends Wednesday

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — The snow emergency for Battle Creek will be lifted early Wednesday morning, city officials said.

The Cereal City was left under more than 18 inches of snow after the Super Bowl Sunday snowstorm. With the snow coming down too fast for plow drivers to keep up, the city manager issued a snow emergency to ban parking on public streets with the hopes of making clearing snow easier.

But as of 9 p.m. Tuesday, all roads had been cleared, according to the city. Plows will keep running to keep intersections and boulevard cross-overs clear, and to move snow piles.

The snow emergency will expire at 6 a.m. Wednesday, after which drivers can park on the streets.

The city will have been under the snow emergency for 48 hours.
