Gillette’s Level 2 Snow Emergency expires

GILLETTE, Wyo. — Gillette has dropped from a Level 2 to a Level 1 Snow Emergency, effective at 5:15 p.m. today.

Citizens are asked to continue to exercise caution when traveling throughout the city as plow crews are still working, the city said. Parking is still prohibited on designated snow routes:

1.) 6th Street from Burma Avenue to Gillette Avenue.
2.) 4th Street from 4-J Road to Gurley Avenue.
3.) Gurley Avenue from 12th Street to 4th Street.
4.) 4-J Road from 2nd Street to 8th Street.
5.) Brooks Avenue from 2nd Street to Warlow.
6.) 9th Street from Butler Spaeth to Highway 59.
7.) Foothills Boulevard from Highway 14-16 to Echeta Road.
8.) 7th Street from Highway 59 to 4-J Road.

The city will announce when the Level 1 Snow Emergency ends. The City encourages residents to monitor local media, the city website and social media for more information.

While the City of Gillette’s Level 2 Snow Emergency was allowed to expire at about 4 p.m. Wednesday, it was reinstated at 5:20 a.m. today due to additional accumulations and high winds.

In a Level 1 Weather Emergency, travel isn’t restricted but residents should expect adverse road conditions, like icy roads, reduced visibility and drifting snow. City facilities nee to remain open for business during a Level 1 Weather Emergency. Level II, on the other hand, advises against non-emergency travel. Roads could be impassable, and drivers may be interfering with snow and storm damage removal as well as emergency services.
