With approximately eight inches of snow falling from Friday evening through Sunday morning, Facilities & Services (F&S) expedited snow and ice removal from sidewalks, pathways, building entrances, roads, bike lanes, and parking lots to help get the Urbana campus ready for the first day of instruction this semester.

Snow and ice removal in areas vital to the operation and safety of campus users is the top priority. Clearing activities for a winter weather event of this duration and intensity display the commitment and persistence of the more than 125 building service workers, drivers, grounds workers, operating engineers, garage staff, and support personnel performing shifts over the weekend to keep the campus open and accessible for students, faculty, and staff.

Many of these same individuals who successfully cleared the campus after the significant accumulation returned early this morning to address remaining touch-up items and will continue to do so throughout the week as thawing and re-freezing conditions persist.

More information about campus snow/ice removal is available at http://www.fs.illinois.edu/services/maintenance/snow-removal. If you have questions or feedback about snow and ice removal operations, or to report areas for treatment, contact the F&S Service Office fsserviceoffice@illinois.edu, 333-0340.

Thank you for your patience and assistance as F&S crews perform this priority work during winter weather events.
