How soon after a snowfall do plowing and salting operations begin?
Anti-icing of the roadways begins before a snowfall, with the application of brine. Once the snow starts falling, Public Works typically begins plowing operations after two to three inches of snow has fallen, or sooner if road condition reports indicate the need. Plowing may be suspended between 8:00 pm and 4:00 am, depending on the severity of the snow event. Public Works crews aim to have all streets and cul-de-sacs cleared within a day after the snow stops falling.
