Before the next snowstorm hits, let's brush up on why certain roads are plowed first in this Snowtification. Streets are plowed in a specific order during a snowstorm. This helps people get in and out of town and ensures emergency vehicles can get where they need to go.
Here's the order streets are plowed:
- Priority 1 – Major streets are cleared first to open routes for emergency vehicles
- Priority 2 – City residential streets
- Priority 3 – Circles and cul-de-sacs
- Priority 4 – Parks and trails, parking lots, city buildings
