Feb. 7: Snow Emergency Alert in Plymouth
City crews have been plowing and salting main roadways since 4 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 7. Snow plow drivers will continue to plow until rush hour and take a break to rest after 12+ hours on the road – before beginning a full city plow.
Please note that during ongoing snowstorms, crews pre-treat roads and plow main thoroughfares and priority routes, but continuous snowfall can mean that plowed streets quickly become buried again. Download the Snow Plow Route Map (PDF). It’s typically most effective to begin citywide plowing once the storm has subsided. Even with a crew of 30, in addition to contract plow drivers, it generally takes about 9 hours after snow stops falling to clear Plymouth’s more than 320 miles of roads and 920 cul-de-sacs.
A snow emergency has been declared and full city snow removal is set to begin at midnight Thursday, Feb. 7 in Plymouth. With continuous snowfall, plowing overnight will help clear city roadways in advance of the morning commute.
Thank you for your patience during this ongoing storm and please drive carefully.
