Keeping You Moving
182" of Snow Plowed So Far This Winter
The month of March was full of epic powder days and over 61 inches of plowable snow was recorded by the Town Road Division. That is more than any other month, in any other year, since the Town started tracking snowfall in 1987. In total, the Town has now recorded over 182 inches of snow plowed so far this winter, which is already more than the total for any season in ten years, and it is on pace with record years like 2007 / 2008 and 1992 / 1993. With all of this snowfall, it takes a lot of Town staff to keep you moving safely,
including Village Shuttle drivers, police officers, fleet mechanics, and of course... our snow plow operators.
Snow plow equipment is readied and operators are dispatched as soon as snow is in the forecast. When the snow starts dumping, operators are responsible for clearing 34.5 miles of paved streets in three tiers of priorities:
First, operators plow and spot sand major arterial roadways, including: Brush Creek Road, Owl Creek Road, Highline Road, and Carriage Way. Second, major collector streets, such as Wood Road and Faraway Road, are plowed. Lastly, crews begin clearing residential streets and parking lots. Not all residential streets can be plowed at the same time, however, and according to the Town’s Snow Removal Plan, the road crews try to hit the streets that need them the most first.
