  • The City of Mexico declares a Snow Emergency as of 3:00 p.m., Thursday, February 21, 2013 until further notice. In declaring a Snow Emergency a special "No Parking" ban goes into effect on streets signed as part of the Emergency Snow Route. Residents or businesses located along the Emergency Snow Route are prohibited to park their vehicles on the streets during a declared snow emergency. Vehicles left on these designated streets significantly interfere with snow removal operations and are subject to being towed at the owner's expense or plowed in. Snow Emergency Routes are the first streets to be plowed generally in a grid pattern.
    The following streets located within the City are hereby designated as emergency snow routes:
    Clark to Agriculture
    Liberty Street from Muldrow to Morris
    Boulevard from Muldrow to Elmwood Drive
    Clark from Boulevard to Love Street
    Lakeview from Morris to West city limits
    Teal Lake from U.S. Highway 54 to Fairground
    Fairground from Teal Lake to Lakeview
    Morris from Boulevard to Highway 22 (Monroe)
    Love Street from Agriculture to North Western
    Jefferson from Liberty to North city limits
    Kentucky from Highway 22 to North city limits
    Summit from Jefferson to Agriculture
    Omar from Boulevard to Lakeview
    Hendricks from Kentucky to Jefferson
    Breckenridge from Fairground to Green Boulevard
    For a map of the Emergency Snow Route please refer to the City website: www.mexicomissouri.net
    The Snow Emergency Route system was planned so very few residents have to go more than a few blocks to get to a plowed main street. It works the other way also, allowing public safety and other emergency vehicles to get within a few blocks of any home by way of plowed streets. These are truly "emergency" routes to keep essential services functioning after major snowfalls that would otherwise paralyze the City.
    Residents are encouraged to remove vehicles from all streets whenever a large snow event is predicted to assist in the efficiency in plowing snow citywide.
