Somerville Snow Emergency to Remain in Effect, Schools Closed Through Wednesday

Due to high snow accumulations and ongoing work to clear public streets and walkways, and the forecast for more potential snow events this week, the City’s snow emergency will REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Residents may continue to park in municipal or school lots until the snow emergency is lifted. Trash and recycling pickup schedules will continue as normal this week.

DPW and contracted crews will continue to clear snow around-the-clock over the next week, including removing high snow banks that impair visibility, as well as at bus stops and crosswalks. To ensure safety of all residents, particularly children during this time, school has been canceled through Wednesday.

More information and updates will be available via the City website, Facebook page and Twitter feeds, which can be found at

Probably good. even sides not cleared enough for parking around here yet.

Absolutely agree! Most side-street sidewalks aren't fully clear, either.
