Snow Clearance Update

Posted on

Beaver County crews are currently out clearing snow across the County to ensure the safety of the travelling public.

Under the County’s Snow and Ice Clearing Level of Service Policy, snow and ice control is carried out based on the following order of priority:

a. All bus routes;
b. All major collector and resource roads which are not bus routes;
c. All minor collector roads which are not bus routes;
d. All local roads which are not bus routes;
e. Roadways and driveways used to access emergency service providers (e.g. fire halls)
f. Snow clearing of private driveways;
g. Snow clearing of private approaches (if not done as part of snow clearing);
h. Snow clearing of public facilities as requested (e.g. community halls);
i. Unmaintained road allowances used for agricultural purposes, on a per request basis as equipment and resources are available

If you wish to have your driveway cleared, be sure to sign a Snow Clearance Agreement with the County.
