When snowfall depth on the street accumulates to two inches, seven additional plows join the eight first response plows. Depending on the forecast and current road conditions, the plows may team up and tandem plow the primary roads before breaking off into residential streets. Once the primary and secondary roadways are cleared, the trucks will split from the tandem plowing operation and go into third priority hilly roads and residential streets.
During Phase II, residents should move vehicles off all streets until plowing has been completed. The crews work around the clock until all roadways have one pass cleared.
