City of Easton Declares Snow Emergency

The City of Easton has declared a snow emergency in advance of what is expected to be a heavy snowfall later today into tomorrow.

From this evening Friday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. through tomorrow afternoon, on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 1 p.m.,  vehicles parked along any "Snow Emergency Routes" in the city must be moved and may not return until the emergency is lifted.

Residents living along Snow Emergency Routes are permitted to park in the South Third Street Parking Garage beginning this evening at 5 p.m., Friday, Feb. 8, without charge during the course of the emergency.

Snow emergency garage patrons are required to have their vehicles removed by 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9 to avoid being charged for parking.


  1. I live in West Easton, which usually puts out it's own snow emergency. About half an hour ago an Easton Police Car drove down Keystone Ave., in West Easton warning residents of the snow emergency. I have not yet seen a separate snow emergency warning for West Easton and their website is down. I believe Mayor Gross makes the decision for the snow emergency. Did the officer make a mistake and telling West Easton Residents to move their cars?, or has the snow emergency been activated in the West Easton area?

    1. Snow Emergency begins at 9 PM in, West Easton.
