City of Asheville making progress clearing snow/ice from neighborhoods, sidewalks

ART bus routes back to normal


A quick update on the City of Asheville’s snow recovery efforts:


ART bus service resumed normal operations on all routes Tuesday afternoon and that continues today.

The Public Works Streets Division has all of it equipment focusing on hitting problem areas as they are reported and plowing and putting material on secondary streets. Road conditions are good on main thoroughfares but there is still some snow, as well as ice and black ice, on neighborhood streets. Travel with caution on these roads is still advised.

We remind residents that on-street parking may make it difficult or in some cases prohibit access by  large plow/spreader equipment.

And the City is clearing sidewalks on City-owned property. Above is City Public Works employee Chad Austin, in orange, working with contract employees hired by the City to help clear sidewalks. They were working at the corner of Eagle and Market streets Tuesday afternoon.

Residents within the City limits are encouraged to call if they see large patches ice or snow that need treatment by the City, 828-259-5852 or 828-251-1122. Bear in mind that this number applies only to streets maintained by the City of Asheville.
