When will my street be plowed after a snow storm?

Streets will be plowed after a snow accumulation of 1.5 inches or more, drifting of snow that causes problems for travel and icy conditions that seriously affect travel. 

Street Plowing Priority

  • Primary: Major roads and those that provide access to medical services, fire stations, police and other critical services are plowed first. Those are followed by other key transportation streets, including those that provide access to schools and businesses.
  • Secondary: Residential streets.
  • Alleys: Plowed by a separate vehicle, usually along with or after secondary routes.
  • Timing: Depending on storm severity and length, primary routes may be plowed several times before secondary routes. Crews try to plow secondary routes only once per storm, if reasonable, so homeowners only need to clear the end of their driveway one time.
