Snow Control in Downtown Naperville
Every year, the Department of Public Works hauls snow piles out of the downtown area to keep parking spaces open, visibility safer and to reduce icy and hazardous conditions for pedestrians.
This year, snow will be hauled out of the downtown area into the Kroehler parking lot (near the Naperville Metra Station), which is currently closed to commuters and the safest option for snow loadout. Most snow loadouts occur during the daytime hours the days after it snows; however, large scale loadouts during and after major snowstorms may take several days to complete and/or occur during nighttime hours. Nearby residents may hear some noise from equipment used to pile snow when these loadouts occur.
