Snow crews focus on keeping main arteries passable for emergency vehicles and public transportation (red primary routes). This includes snow emergency routes; arterial streets; high-volume, multi-use County trails; main bus routes; and roads to hospitals, fire stations, Metro stations and the police station.
Roadways and trails are only treated; no plowing, which could damage road surfaces.
Plowing generally begins when snow becomes 2-4 inches deep.
When – A winter weather storm is forecast for the region.
