Snow & Ice Control

Snow and Ice Control graphic

To keep up with growth and keep streets safe and ready for emergency personnel during and after storms producing snow and ice, the Town has adopted a tiered approach to snow control. This plan will prioritize and identify primary routes (Tier 1) and secondary routes (Tier 2) as designated roads to be plowed due to snow accumulation and icy conditions. All other residential streets (Tier 3) will only be plowed after snowstorms that produce over eight inches of snow within one 24-hour period.

Traditionally, our Public Works department plowed every street in every Town of Frederick subdivision and neighborhood maintained by the Town. And while this plan was very appealing, the goal to keep emergency routes and at least one artery through each area suffered due to the overall workload. Moving in the direction to focus on emergency routes, major arterials, and main subdivision routes (the in and out route of a neighborhood) to provide our emergency personnel with safe routes will ultimately increase the well-being of our residents. So, unless you live on Tier 1 or Tier 2 route, your street will not be plowed unless we experience a significant storm.

Learn more about the new plan for plows and see what Tier your street is on.
