GEORGETOWN, Del.– In anticipation of another round of winter weather, the Town of Georgetown said it planned to activate its snow emergency plan at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Starting at 6 p.m., parking restrictions will apply to designated snow emergency routes, making it easier and more effective for equipment to clear snow from the streets.

The designated snow emergency routes are: 

  • East Market Street
  • West Market Street
  • North Bedford Street
  • South Bedford Street
  • Bridgeville Road
  • East Pine Street
  • West Pine Street
  • North Race Street
  • South Race Street
  • North Front Street
  • South Front Street
  • East Laurel Street – North Bedford Street to North Race Street
  • West Laurel Street – North Bedford Street to North Front Street
  • Edward Street – North Bedford Street to North Front Street
  • West North Street – North Bedford Street to DuPont Highway (Route 113)

Vehicles parked along these streets may be subject to towing if not removed by the owner.  Residents are asked to avoid traveling during adverse weather conditions. Those who must travel are asked to use caution around snow removal equipment and personnel.

Town ordinance also states that the sidewalks be cleared within eight hours after a snowfall. Residents with a fire hydrant near their property are asked to take an extra minute or two to ensure that it is cleared and visible.

Residents with questions about the snow emergency can log on to www.georgetowndel.com for more information, or call the Georgetown Town Hall at (302) 856-7391.
