Snow and other precipitation will be plowed in a manner so as to minimize traffic obstructions. Generally, the center of the roadway will be plowed first. The snow will then be pushed from left to right on two-way streets. On one-way streets or where there is a center boulevard, snow may be pushed in either direction. The discharge will go onto the boulevard area of the street. Snow on cul-de-sacs will normally be plowed to the center in an attempt to provide the largest turning radius possible for emergency vehicle ingress and egress. When a plow is on a bridge, the driver shall slow down to minimize snow going over the bridge, if possible. In times of extreme snowfall, streets may not be immediately cleared of snow.

After a storm passes, clean-up operations will begin the next business day to clear intersections and snow storage areas along corners and boulevards.
