What’s open and closed in the Concord area

At Pats Peak, tomorrow’s forecast is the perfect weather.

“POWDER ALERT!! This is what we’ve been waiting for – A POWDER DAY!!,” Pats Peak announced on its Facebook page. “Follow a plow truck and make your way to PATS PEAK! We’ll be waiting for you!!”

But few others are as excited about the monster snowstorm on its way to New England. Most government agencies, including schools and libraries, called it quits before the first flake fell. Here’s what you need to know about where you can’t go:

Gov. Maggie Hassan has closed the state government for tomorrow. Both the House and Senate canceled all hearings for Tuesday, and the State House is expected to be closed. Prison visitations are canceled Tuesday at the women’s state prison in Goffstown and the men’s state prison in Concord. The courts will also be closed tomorrow and are expected to reopen Wednesday. To check your court date Wednesday, call 855-212-1234.

The city of Concord has declared an on-street parking ban midnight Monday to 7 a.m. Tuesday, and from midnight Tuesday to 7 a.m. Wednesday. But a side benefit is there will be no charge for on-street parking during the day and no meter maids to hand out tickets.

The general services department, however, will be open and plowing. The city has 10 plow trucks on call until 11 p.m., and then 28 vehicles from the general services department will take to the road from 11 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. After midnight, you can call the department’s emergency line at 228-2740 with questions or concerns. Crews will continue to clear the roads and then the sidewalks tomorrow, and during business hours, residents can reach the department at 228-2837.

Curbside trash pickup is delayed by one day for the remainder of the week. For example, Tuesday’s routes will be collected Wednesday.

Flights out of Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Logan Airport in Boston Tuesday are canceled. Tom Malafronte, assistant airport director, said he expected service to resume Wednesday morning.

“The best recommendation that we can give is for folks to contact their airline directly,” Malafronte said. Many airlines are offering waiver to change travel itineraries, he said. For general information and updates on the status of your flight, check flymanchester.com/flights.

Concord Coach Lines canceled all service Tuesday and some routes early Wednesday morning. To check the bus schedule, visit concordcoachlines.com. Concord Area Transit will not run tomorrow as well.

“In 16 years I’ve been here, we’ve never shut down,” director Jim Sudak said.

City Hall and the Concord Public Library will both be closed Tuesday.

For families looking for something to do, it could be a challenge.

“If it’s snowing like they’re saying it’s supposed to, I won’t be open,” said Steve Birch, the owner of Boutwell’s bowling alley in Concord.

The folks at Krazy Kids indoor play area in Pembroke said they hope to be open, but would post on their website in the morning if they decided to close.

The Concord School District and other schools did call off school Tuesday. The Concord Family YMCA, which follows the Concord School District, will also not be open. If the school district calls a two-hour delay Wednesday, the YMCA will cancel its morning classes; if the district calls off school entirely Wednesday, the YMCA will likely be closed entirely.
