[ARCHIVED] Helping your Snowplow Driver

Trucks_Plows

Whether two inches of snow or 10, it’s a challenge for Roseville’s snowplow drivers to quickly and safely clear the roads. Roseville has more than 350 lane miles plus 70 miles of sidewalks to clear after each snow event.

It takes up to eight hours to plow the city following a four-inch snowfall, and the more snow that falls, the longer it takes.

Roseville’s snowplow operators remind drivers of the guidelines so they can plow quickly and efficiently.

  • When two inches of snow has accumulated a parking ban goes into effect and parking is prohibited on all city streets. Sign up to receive showplow alerts. Click the Alert – Snowplows link to receive a text or email notice when snowplows are about to roll.
  • Stay at least four car lengths behind a snowplow. Plows can create dangerous snow clouds and can throw chunks of snow, ice and debris.
  • Do not pass a snowplow on the right. Snowplows push snow and spread ice control to the right.
  • Do not put trashcans or recycling bins in the street. Snowplow drivers cannot stop or drive around the bins, and bins could end up down the street.
  • Do not allow children to play in the streets or build tunnels in snow banks along streets and driveways.

Roseville’s Snow and Ice Policy is available at www.cityofroseville.com/snowicepolicy. Call 651-792-7004 to report hazardous conditions or to get information related to snowplowing.
