Bridges- Bridges by their nature are separated from ground level and therefore are perpetually exposed to the elements on all sides.  This condition causes them to “ice up”
 more quickly then the rest of the roadway system.  Consequently, salting is required more often to abate icy, slippery conditions.
Access Routes- To be cleared after completion of major and secondary roads.  Access routes are the roads typically providing quick access for school buses from a secondary or primary road to the school, not the school bus routes.
Residential Streets- To be cleared as equipment and manpower are available after primary, secondary, and school access routes are completed.  This policy exists provided that snowfall exceeds approximately four inches (4”) in depth or extremely hazardous conditions exist for an extended period of time.  No removal operations will occur If rapidly ascending temperatures are expected.  Total Lane Miles: 532
Note: It should be understood that snowfalls that follow closely upon one another my disrupt the above-mentioned routine as efforts need to be diverted to a higher priority.  




3/3/2016 8:10 PM DPW crews have been called in and have begun clearing primary roads and access routes. 

3/4/2016 7:00 AM Plow trucks are clearing primary and access routes.
