How long will it take for the Public Works Department to plow my road after a snowstorm?
During a storm, high priority is given to major roads in the Township to make it safer for emergency vehicles and school buses. After that is accomplished, snow removal crews plow the other residential roads. Cul-de-sacs are the last areas to be cleared due to low traffic volume. It takes approximately 9 hours for all the roads to be plowed during a normal 3” to 6” snowstorm. Help out the Fire Department by digging out the snow by the fire hydrant near your home. A few extra minutes then, can save valuable time in the case of a fire.

How long do I have to shovel my sidewalk after a snowstorm?

Please keep in mind that the Township Trail System is maintained for recreational purposes only and is not maintained as a sidewalk.
