Photo: It’ll be snowy in Belmont Tuesday.
Like you didn’t see this coming.
With the season’s biggest Nor’easter on the doorstep, Belmont – along with most of the state – is battening down in preparation for more than a foot and a half of snow on Tuesday, March 14.
- Belmont’s public schools, town buildings and the Belmont Public Library will be closed as will the Belmont Public Library.
- The Benton Library will be closed; Pre-School Story Time will not meet.
- The storm is expected to be so severe that the Department of Public Works has canceled trash and recycling pick up.
- The Belmont Police has already issued a snow emergency parking ban beginning at 5 p.m., Tuesday and lasting until further notice. The town will tow vehicles parked on roadways and in municipal and school parking lots after the ban is in effect.
- In addition to the town closing shop, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker is urging residents to avoid driving Tuesday and take public transportation if possible.
- The MBTA is expecting to run a regular weekday schedule, but travelers should check with the authority’s severe weather web page throughout the day.
