Plowing snow in the City

During a snow storm, Public Works de-ices and plows 2,000 lane miles with City and contract equipment across 200 plowing routes. State agencies — like the Department of Conservation and Recreation and Massachusetts Department of Transportation — clear state-owned roads.

Xổ số may mắn hàng tuầnAt full deployment, Public Works uses up to 700 pieces of equipment. They clear small public alleys, side streets, and dead ends are also cleared before the end of the City's snow removal efforts.

Xổ số may mắn hàng tuầnIn clearing roadways, Public Works needs to plow snow across driveways. When you shovel your driveway or parked car, please remember that crews make frequent passes until roads are cleared.
