Snow or Ice on Roadway Removal

When it snows, the City launches a winter snow storm operation and follows an initial plan for clearing snow and ice from the highways, snow emergency streets, bus lanes, and other primary routes. As this initial phase is completed, the City moves forward to spread and plow all roadways. City streets may be spread with salt and calcium chloride and/or plowed to create a passable driving lane, but blacktop may not be visible.

The City does NOT clear access to automobiles, sidewalks or driveways even if the obstruction was caused by a City plow.

Snow is always plowed to the right side of the street because the same trucks must plow both one-way and two-way streets. Once the plows are mounted on trucks they cannot be shifted from one direction to the other.

Requests for re-plowing and re-spreading are now being accepted.
