Road conditions are better Friday morning, as main roads around Central Illinois are mostly cleared and plows make their way into other areas.

Plows are done with their sweep of residential streets. Residential roads in the city of Peoria are still snow-covered, but drivable as of Friday morning. Plow crews are moving on to city alleyways.

The city parking ban expired at 8 a.m. People parked in garages along alleys may consider moving their vehicles to the street.

Crews are working downtown, but some areas still need to be plowed. The parking decks at the Twin Towers, Niagara Deck, and Jefferson deck can be used by downtown workers for free on Friday.

Clearing sidewalks is the responsibility of property owners in the city of Peoria.

Garbage and recycling collection in the city of Peoria is delayed by one day for the rest of this week.
