These locations are the primary focus for snow removal and treatment during any weather event that creates unsafe road conditions.
Public Works personnel will refocus their efforts on ancillary (side) streets and roadways only after the designated priority routes have been treated and plowed to the extent conditions are mitigated to allow their efforts to be repurposed onto other locations such as side streets and others that do not have hills or busy intersections.
During snow events please use caution when driving only when necessary. Please remain 30 feet away from plow/salt trucks at all times.
