Joint Release from Cities of Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park, and Shawnee

Crews from the cities of Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park and Shawnee continue working non-stop to clear snow from city streets.  Each jurisdiction has made significant progress clearing arterial streets.  However, the volume and heavy nature of the snow is impacting every jurisdiction’s progress clearing residential streets, and refreezing will further add to the challenge.

Each city will be directing as many resources as possible to residential areas and working around the clock to clear them.  However, the cities of Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park and Shawnee are reminding residents that clearing residential streets will take considerably longer than a typical storm.

Additional information about street plowing is available on each city’s respective website:  Lenexa: www.lenexa.com<http://www.lenexa.com; Olathe: www.OlatheKS.org; Overland Park: www.opkansas.org; and Shawnee: www.cityofshawnee.org.
