Albany Dept. of General Services, Together with Resources from NYS Dept. of Transportation & Thruway Authority, Continues to Remove Snow Across City

Mayor Sheehan: “Our City’s Department of General Services crews continue to meet the Herculean task of cleaning up after Albany’s 8th largest snow storm in history with skill, dedication, and professionalism.”

Albany, NY – The City of Albany’s Snow Emergency has ended effective 8:00 AM Sunday. Snow Emergency parking restrictions have been lifted, and regular parking rules are in effect.

Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan said, “Our City’s Department of General Services crews continue to meet the Herculean task of cleaning up after Albany’s 8th largest snow storm in history with skill, dedication, and professionalism. This is brutal, exhausting, and often thankless work, however these dedicated public servants show up day after day and deliver service that keeps this City moving in the most dangerous and difficult of circumstances, and I’m so proud of their continued efforts. I would like to again thank Governor Andrew Cuomo, the New York State Department of Transportation, and the New York State Thruway Authority for deploying state assets to assist our crews with snow removal operations inside the City of Albany in response to the largest snow storm since 1993.”

Residents and visitors can expect to see the continued deployment of heavy equipment including front loaders and trucks to physically remove snow from City streets over the next several days. During the course of these operations, City streets may temporarily close to traffic.

Even though the Snow Emergency concluded at 8:00 AM Sunday and regular parking rules are in effect, the City of Albany is asking residents to please ensure their vehicle is parked on the correct side of the street and be aware of any “Emergency No Parking” postings over the next several days to help our DGS crews remove snow safely and efficiently, especially on streets where there was limited move-over compliance during the Snow Emergency.

Through Monday at 6:00 AM, the following additional parking areas continue to be available in the City:

Through continued partnership with Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Office of General Services, the following New York State OGS Parking Areas have been made available for free parking beginning Friday, December 18 at 5:00 PM:

  • Madison Avenue Visitor Lot (West of New York State Museum)
  • East Garage (corner of Philip St. and Madison Ave.)

Sidewalk Snow Removal:

It is imperative that property owners keep the sidewalks adjacent to their property clear for pedestrians in wheelchairs and pedestrian walkers to safely pass by. According to City Code 323-21, it is the responsibility of all property owners’ and/or residents to remove snow and ice from the sidewalks and accessibility ramps adjacent to their property within 24 hours of the end of a snowstorm.

If your sidewalk is not in compliance within 24 hours of the last snowfall, the Department of General Services may clear the sidewalk of snow and ice, and the property owner will be issued a bill for the cost of removal and charged a fine.
