Driveway Snow Removal
Minimizing Snow Left by Plows at End of Driveway

It is best not to clear the portion of your driveway near the street until snowplows have cleared the street. The City uses fixed snowplows that throw the snow to the right of the truck and it is not possible for snowplow operators to keep the windrow of snow away from a driveway.

The diagram above illustrates how you can minimize the amount of snow left in your driveway entrance by passing snowplows. If you must shovel your driveway entrance before snow removal crews have come down your street, try to follow the instructions in the diagram as you shovel out to the street from your home. By clearing space as illustrated, you allow an area for the plow to unload the snow before it reaches your driveway.
