Keeping our Roads Safe
The Road Division has followed a snow removal plan using up-to-date equipment and technology to care for the approximately 150 inches of snow that fall on the Town’s roadways during an average winter season. However, drivers should always exercise extreme in winter conditions.
Snow Removal Plan
The Public Works Road Division’s goal is to provide snow and ice control and to keep the roadways clean of dust and gravel in a professional and proactive manner. They do this according to a snow removal strategy (PDF) that prioritizes roadways according to traffic volumes, public safety requirements, bus routes, and access for emergency equipment.
The Town’s fleet of snow fighting equipment is readied as soon as snow is forecasted. The Road Division crew consists of 7 operators scheduled from 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. seven days a week during the ski season.
