Winter Roadway Maintenance
Roadways are cleared of snow as necessary. During normal winter conditions, County gravel roads should be cleared of snow within four days, unless there is heavy snow and persistent winds.
Collector and local roads are cleared utilizing a fleet of 10 graders, each responsible for an average of 120 to 160 miles. One plow truck is designated to remove snow and apply sand/salt to oil and paved surface roads. Two graders are allocated for snow and ice removal on arterial roads. Back roads or blind roads will not be plowed unless deemed necessary by Public Works.
Please keep in mind that our crews will be out working on our roadways and to use extreme caution while travelling on these roads while they are being maintained in any way. Thank you.
