SNOW EMERGENCY PROCEDURES

The City of Long Beach is prepared for winter storms, with snow removal vehicles and salt/sand spreaders ready to go when snow starts to fall. In the event that a heavy snowfall is predicted for our area, a Snow Emergency may be declared, which means your vehicle must be removed from designated roads. By reading the information provided, residents can contribute to successful snow removal operations.

A Snow Emergency Procedures Newsletter was sent to every home.  If you did not receive it you can download it here. 

For safety reasons, City of Long Beach crews will clear the Snow Emergency Routes first so that fire trucks, ambulances, buses and other essential vehicles can pass safely. Plowing will begin when 2 inches of snow has accumulated.  In the event that a heavy snowfall is predicted for our area, a Snow Emergency may be declared in advance of the storm, which means your vehicle must be removed from designated roads.   

Please remove vehicles from the following Snow Emergency Routes when a Snow Emergency is declared.

•West Beech Street from Nevada Avenue to Grand Boulevard

•West Park Avenue from Nevada Avenue to New York Avenue

•West Side of Maryland Avenue from Park Avenue to Beech Street

•West Side JJ Evans Boulevard from Park Avenue to Pine Street

•Shore Road from Long Beach Boulevard to Maple Boulevard

•East Pine Street from Neptune Boulevard to Curley Street

Parking on the Pine Street Canal Bridges is prohibited. Alternate side of the street parking will remain in effect to ensure that snow is removed efficiently.

Any vehicle parked on the above streets during a declared Snow Emergency will be towed at the owner’s expense. After snow is cleared, streets will be reopened for parking.

Residents will be notified when a Snow Emergency goes into effect via the City’s official website, City social media pages and our emergency notification system through text, phone and email. Be sure to sign up for Community Notifications.
