Snow and Ice Removal
All streets in the city are assigned one of the following priorities:
Priority A: This includes primary routes, hazardous bridges, arterial streets, steep grades and major collector streets, and will be the first roadways to be cleared of ice/snow. Examples include Church Street, Laurens Road, Roper Mountain Road and Pleasantburg Drive.
Priority B: This includes collector streets. On these streets, snow and ice will be removed or they will be spread with sand to make travel as safe as possible. Sand will only be used whenever it is deemed necessary. Examples include McDaniel Avenue, Rutherford Road, Verdae Boulevard and Parkins Mill Road.
Priority C: This includes residential collectors and commercial streets. These routes will be plowed once “A“ and “B” streets have been addressed and all hill and trouble spots will be covered with sand. Examples include Cleveland Street, Lowndes Hill Road and Wembley Road.
Priority D: This includes select neighborhood streets with steep hills or other trouble spots. These are only plowed if all other priorities have been addressed and if resources and supplies are available.
Driveway Entrances: The removal of snow, both on and off the public right-of-way
is the responsibility of the property owner.
