[ARCHIVED] Snow Emergency Routes

On January 2, 2018 Town Council approved Ordinance 2018-02 that authorizes the Town Manager to establish snow emergency routes. The routes designated shall be posted with appropriate signs indicating their designation as snow emergency routes. In the event of snow, sleet, hail, freezing rain, ice, water, flood, high wind, storm, or the threat thereof, the Police Department may be authorized to remove any vehicle that is stalled, stuck, parked, or abandoned on or along any highway or street designated as a snow emergency route. The goal of the program is to allow Public Works crews to safely clear vital routes within Town for emergency vehicles and the general public. Once the designated streets have been completely cleared, the parking restriction will be lifted.

The streets highlighted in red on the map below (see link) have been designated as snow emergency routes. Should the Town Manager declare a snow or other emergency, vehicles must be removed from the designated routes. The Town Manager’s declaration will be posted on the Town’s website, social media, and cable channel and will be shared with the news media when feasible. As this is a new process, Town staff will make every attempt to facilitate a smooth transition should the snow emergency routes need to be enforced.

To reiterate, you may park on the designated snow emergency routes unless the Town Manager has declared a snow or other emergency.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Matt Reynal, Public Works Operation Manager,  or Mike Davis, Director of Public Works, at (804)752-6875.
