Snow and Ice Removal

The city's Public Works Department follows a priority system for clearing snow and ice from more than 2,000 lane miles of streets and bridges. This includes:

  • 1,866 cul-de-sacs
  • 54 bridge decks
  • 20 miles of border roads

150+ City employees from the public works department, parks services, recreation services, the planning department and the police and fire departments will come together to respond in a weather event. They use city-owned large dump truck plows and pickup-style plows, along with contracted large and pickup-style plows to clear the streets. 

Over the winter of 2015 and 2016, crews cleared 5.1" of snow over seven weather events. They used 4,187 tons of salt. 13,500 tons of salt is ready for this snow season.
