Winter Storm Updates


Updates and news will be posted here related to the current storm event.

UPDATE: January 28, 5:30 p.m. 

Public Works continues to operate on 12 hour shifts, salting and plowing. The goal is to plow and salt the streets as quickly and efficiently as possible, before temperatures drop. Once temperatures drop below 25 degrees, the melting ability of salt greatly decreases. Once area streets are plowed curb to curb, detailed snow removal efforts will move to alleys, courts and cul-de-sacs. The Village’s Snow Plan calls for the clean-up effort for a snowfall in the range of 5 inches to be cleared within 8-10 hours from the cessation of the accumulation, which was around 9:00 am this morning. Crews will continue to work through the evening and overnight hours to assure that the roadways are cleared in advance of commuter and rush hour.

The Village will begin to remove the windrows starting at 10:00 pm this evening. The operation should last approximately 6 hours. Windrows are the piles of snow in the middle of some streets such as St. Charles. Westmore-Meyers and Main Street.

The forecast calls for temperatures in the upper 20's/lower 30's, but will be quickly falling later this afternoon into the 20's then steadily falling into the single digits and below zero late tonight and into Tuesday morning. An additional ¼ inch snowfall is anticipated for early this evening. Snow showers may continue with slight accumulation.

In addition to the snow removal, Public Works is repairing a water main break in the block of 500 S LaLonde Ave. This is the forth water main break in the last 24 hours. The repair should be completed this evening. 

UPDATE January 27, 4:30 p.m. 

Public Works crews finished the plowing/salting operation this morning at approximately 5 a.m. Lombard received 3 inches of snow before accumulation stopped around 9 p.m. on Saturday night.

In addition to the plowing operation, PW has responded to two main breaks on Lynn Lane. One was repaired and then a subsequent break about 20 feet away from the first break was detected. The crew is in near the end of the repairing process. Another main break at Rt. 53, north of St. Charles Road has also been identified. The area is secure and salted and repair efforts are in process.

Crews will be continue prepping at 8:00 p.m. for for tonight’s storm. Snow is expected to start tonight around midnight and will continue through tomorrow (Monday) morning. Accumulation of 3-7” is possible. If you must drive, please use extra caution and leave extra time for your morning commute.

While crews will be salting ahead of the storm, please keep in mind that the effectiveness of salt decreases as temperatures plummet. Overnight conditions will improve once the sun is up, but please anticipate slick surfaces for walking and driving.
