Moline's snow route plan goes into effect at 4 p.m. today. Vehicles must be moved from streets marked with 'snow route' signs, to allow for more efficient snow removal. Vehicles parked on snow routes will be towed at the owner’s expense.

Main streets, roads around emergency centers and schools will be plowed first, followed by residential and side streets. Snow routes will be in effect until all routes have been cleared.

The city also reminds residents that snow must be removed from sidewalks bordering their property within 12 hours of a snowfall.

The LOOP bus, which travels on both sides of the river, will not be operating tonight, but will resume normal operations on Friday.
