Why is my street always last to be plowed?

Intensity, duration and timing of the snow event present unique challenges and may result in longer times than anticipated before we are able to remove the snow from every street. As main streets are cleared, we will proceed to the secondary streets and to low volume residential through streets, dead ends and cul-de-sacs, and alleys. Continued snowfall may require that we return to the main streets or dedicate equipment such that we may experience significant delay in getting to Priority 2 and 3 streets. Crews have 16 plow routes which can be seen on the Snow/Salt Maps page. If a snow plow operator finishes their route, they will assist on other routes in order to complete all routes as quickly as conditions allow.
