The snow just keeps on coming. And Duluth plow crews continue to clear it. But the city is asking people not to travel unless necessary, for safety and to make room for the plows.

According to a statement from the city, they have pulled additional plow drivers from other divisions to help. Operations began at 2 a.m.

They've been staying on the main roads and said they will move to residential roads and neighborhoods once the snow tapers off.

You're also encouraged to follow alternate side street parking laws, so plows can move through.

"The City asks that residents remain patient as we try to maintain a high level of service while observing safe work shifts," according to the statement.

To report snow plow or street maintenance needs, please call the snow events hotline at 218-730-5100.

Across the state between 5 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., the Minnesota State Patrol reports there have been 413 crashes, 32 of which included injuries. 494 vehicles have spun out off the road. There have also been 18 jackknifed semis.
