While CSLT snow removal crews are out throughout the city, crews will focus on primary arterial and collector roadways, including:

Per a media release from the city: “Do not attempt to travel as first responders may not be able to rescue you. Travel may already be impossible with several road closures due to heavy snow already being reported.”
A blizzard warning is in effect through 10:00AM Wednesday, followed by a winter storm advisory that is currently set to expire at 4:00AM Thursday. According to the National Weather Service in Reno, snow accumulation through the storm could range from 3 to 7 feet at lake level and 5 to 10 feet above elevations greater than 7,000 feet.
Snow removal crews will attempt to plow residential neighborhoods after primary roadways have been cleared. According to the media release, the City of South Lake Tahoe has 259 lane miles of roadways, and the heavy snowfall could will likely lead to deep snow berms.
Residents are advised to stay off the roadways if at all possible throughout today and tomorrow. Let’s be prepared, #StayHomeStaySafe during the storm.
