Winter Weather Update
Posted on 01/07/2021
Winter truck updateThe Statesville Street crews are watching over the streets tonight and into the weekend to make sure they are as safe as possible for traveling.

When necessary, the crews put sand on the roads to help with traction.  They aren't able to apply sand on all the streets, but try to get the main thoroughfares, bridges, exit ramps and well-known "cold spots".


The City will clear streets if enough snow has fallen (2 inches), but primarily depends on Mother Nature to help melt any frozen precipitation.

SANITATION: Garbage pick-up ran on a regular schedule.

Leaf and yard waste pick-up is suspended temporarily until the weather improves.

KEEP UP WITH UPDATES: Changes to city services or office hours and updates on road conditions will be announced on the City’s website, Facebook and Twitter and through local media.

REPORT AN OUTAGE: If you experience a power outage, call 704-878-3479 to report the outage. Please give your address and any important information about what you might have seen or heard related to the outage.  It is very important that you report the outage. It helps electric utilities crew locate the problem quicker and get your power back on! Be sure to provide your phone number so that you can be contacted when power is restored.

TRAVELING:  Travelers are reminded to be on the lookout for possible icy patches due to freezing temperatures overnight. City crews will use salt and sand to treat any spots on the road that might cause trouble.

Overpasses, bridges and exit ramps are treated first. If you encounter ice or adverse road conditions while traveling in the Statesville area, please call 704-878-3406. Do not call 911.
