Snow removal information
The Road Department provides residents and businesses with snow removal on township maintained streets. To accomplish this task in a timely and efficient manner, the department has divided the township into nine routes.
Snowfalls of less than three inches are removed by melting the snow with rock salt. Rock salt application takes crews approximately four hours to treat all township maintained streets. Snowfalls of more than three inches require roadways to be plowed and salted to remove the heavy snow accumulation. This operation involves at least 10 hours to complete one pass with snow plows over all township roadways.
Weather conditions and traffic patterns can add a substantial amount of time to snow removal operations. To ensure fiscal responsibility and maintain motorist safety, township staff will assess each snow event and make minor adjustments through prioritizing township streets. What this means is the most heavily traveled streets will be treated first, followed by streets with steep grades and select intersections. Please adjust driving habits and time needed for travel to compensate for untreated roadways.
