OMAHA — The city of Omaha says about 80 per cent of residential streets have been cleared in the city in the aftermath of Saturday night's blizzard.

Despite those efforts, concerns about road conditions caused OPS to call off all classes and activities for Monday. The Bellevue School District, Millard School District, Westside, Papillion-La Vista School District, and Council Bluffs also called off classes. Papillion's Designated Kids Club sites will open at 7:30 a.m. You can check the closings section of for further updates on other area school districts.

Below is the latest statement from the city on plowing:

Sunday evening 6:45 update:

Residential streets are about 80% plowed at this time. Salt spreading in residential streets will begin after midnight when we expect the contractors to finish. After so much snow and drifting snow, neighborhood streets will not be plowed to bare pavement, but will be open. Our city crews remain on the main and secondary streets to break up remaining ice and snow pack. Temperatures tonight are expected to fall near or below zero. We are working hard to prepare the city for the Monday commute. Please drive safely.
