Maplewood Street Division’s highest profile job is snow plowing. Our priority is to ensure clear roads for morning and evening rush hour.
Heavily traveled routes, including streets adjacent to schools and commercial areas, are given greater priority over less traveled routes. In cul-de-sacs, the snow is plowed either into the middle or at a selected spot within the cul-de-sac, then hauled away at a later date. This also helps us limit sand, salt and deicer, which can be environmentally disruptive.
