Winter Weather at NCRC

Below is a summary of services in place at NCRC to accommodate inclement weather. 

The sidewalks and driveways at NCRC are serviced by U-M Grounds. Walks are cleared when accumulation reaches approximately 1/2". They will return if accumulation continues depending on the forecast and anticipated snowfall. For more information click here.

The priority entrances for snow removal are Building 75 (Childcare), and approaches to lobbies in Buildings 10, 16, 18, 28, 100 and 520, including bus stops. The next priority are other entrances such as those in Buildings 14, 22, 200/300 and 520 South. They then move to emergency exits to ensure they are cleared.

Courtyards at NCRC are closed once inclement weather begins. Access will be restricted to these areas either by locking access doors or with the use of signage and temporary barriers. We discourage occupants from bypassing the barriers for their own safety.

Parking lots, structures, and docks are maintained by U-M Parking and Transportation. These areas are usually plowed when accumulation reaches 2". Stockpiled snow may not be removed immediately and may take up parking spaces until it is removed or it melts. For detailed information click here.

All snow and ice issues should be reported to the Plant Operations Call Center (POCC) at 734-647-2059 immediately.
