[ARCHIVED] Snow Closures for February 13

Due to the snowstorm predicted for Tuesday, February 13, all Wellesley Town Hall offices at 888 Worcester Street will be closed. 

Staff will be working remotely and available by email and phone. Please check department webpages on the Town of Wellesley website for specific contact information. 

The Recycling and Disposal Facility (RDF) commercial scale will also be closed on Tuesday, February 13. Residents are asked to avoid using the RDF on Tuesday as most RDF and DPW staff will be assisting with plowing and unable to help any stuck vehicles. Please plan RDF trips for Wednesday or other days after the storm is over. 

Wellesley Public Schools will be closed on Tuesday, February 13 and all afternoon and evening activities are cancelled. 

Additional cancellations and information will be posted on Town social media pages. Please follow the accounts below for storm updates:

To assist in snow removal, the DPW has pre-treated roadways and has called in additional plowing staff. Crews clear main roads first, followed by side streets, and sidewalks. 

As plows frequently make multiple passes, wait to clear driveways until plows have passed. Please do not park cars on streets overnight; it is illegal and your car may be towed. If possible, please shovel out any fire hydrants in your neighborhood. See more winter operations tips. 

Emergency Numbers

  • DPW 24/7 hotline - 781-235-7600 ext. 3322
  • WMLP Power Outages - 781-235-7600 ext. 3450
  • Wellesley Police Department - 781-235-1212 or 9-1-1
  • Wellesley Fire Department - 781-235-1300 or 9-1-1

Please be safe in the storm!
