- How do I request to have my street plowed?
During a snow event, city snow plows are focused on clearing main streets because of traffic volume and use by both public transportation and school buses. Once the main routes are cleared and made as safe as possible, attention shifts to residential streets.
What is the goal for clearing city streets following a snow event?
The Streets Department strives to have all streets clear and safely drivable 36 hours after the snow has stopped falling, beginning with the main traffic routes. However, the 36-hour countdown starts over with each new snowfall, as the main thoroughfares must be cleared again.
When can I request to have my street plowed?
Please wait until at least 36 hours after the snow has completely quit falling.
