New Snow Removal Procedures for Winter 2013-14

new mapAs announced in this City press release, new policies and procedures are in place to better prepare the City of Hartford for severe weather and snow storms.

Changes include:

  • A complete reorganization of City snow routes (a map of the new routes can be seen at right or by clicking here)
  • A streamlining of plow routes from from twenty-seven to twenty-four, broken up into six separate districts. Each district now is assigned 4 plow trucks and 4 trained drivers, as well a supervisor, to assure adequate coverage throughout the City.
  • Two, full-day Saturday trainings where all DPW drivers practiced hands-on driving and were tested on knowledge of their route and overall capabilities. 
  • Additional staff training for Department of Public Works (DPW) employees.
  • Major arteries or “A” routes will be salted 24-48 hours in advance of a storm and every side street salted up to 4 hours prior to the commencement of a storm.
  • Strict parking ban enforcement by both DPW and the Hartford Police Department.
