OUR STRATEGY: RESPONDING TO SNOW
1.) MAJOR THOROUGHFARES: Snow Force begins plowing major city streets (thoroughfares) first because they are the link to fire, police and other emergency services. Many Indy residents and commuters depend on these streets daily, especially during rush hour.
Examples include, but are not limited to: Keystone Avenue, Washington Street and Fall Creek Parkway
2.) SECONDARY STREETS: Roads in this category feed into our primary routes but are not as heavily traveled.
Examples include, but are not limited to: Southeastern Avenue, Mithoeffer Road and Ditch Road
3.) RESIDENTIAL AREAS: When the city receives more than 6 inches of snow, DPW activates contractors to plow residential areas. Residential streets are not salted and contractors do not additionally plow in areas where Homeowner Associations provide snow removal service,
