Public Works crews are responsible for clearing snow and ice to ensure safety for all motorists and pedestrians. Typically, we plow 250 - 300 lane miles during a snow event!
Crews prepare equipment, train, monitor forecasts, and create a response plan in September and October.

Crews are assigned shifts and hours based on equipment needed and the severity of the storm. Some storms require 12-hour shifts. Roads are cleared based on the snowplow priority map.
Crew response to snow and ice events doesn't stop when the snow melts! After an event crews clear sand from the roads and storm systems and reset for the next event.
