Snow Plowing

Snow is a way of life in northeast Ohio; that’s why Avon Lake has a thorough plan in place for clearing snow for all 96 miles of roads within our city limits. Here’s what you can expect:

  • During a snowstorm, a five-truck route is in effect.
  • During a heavy storm there are two trucks per route operating (10 total).
  • If the Police or Fire Departments need assistance in an emergency, the snow plows will be diverted to clear the way.
  • Side streets will not be serviced until all major roads are clear and heavy winds often necessitate repeated plowing of the major roads.
  • Cul-de-sacs take longer to plow (the City has 90 cul-de-sacs) thus falling lower in the priority list.
  • The trucks will plow their given route in the reverse direction when the next snowfall occurs.
  • Do not park on the streets when there is more than 2" of snow expected.
  • Keep sidewalks and area surrounding fire hydrants clear of snow.

Did you know? City ordinance prohibits blowing/shoveling snow from driveways into public streets or plowing snow across a public street.
