What is the plowing procedure?

The County does not assure a completely bare road and it will not sand entire sections of roadway. Phased plowing - There are three phases to the process.

  1. Make the road passable by cleaning one lane in each direction.
  2. Widen the lanes to the edge of the shoulders. Sanding takes place at problem locations, including intersections, curves, hills, and bridges. The salt mixture varies with temperature and road conditions.
  3. Cleanup, during which ice and slush are removed and the sun is allowed to do its work.
