Maintenance (Road)

Snow Plows
  • Give snowplow drivers room to work and to avoid your vehicle from being hit by flying material
  • Do not travel next to a snowplow because they may suddenly move sideways
  • Be aware of parking restrictions
Snow Dumping
We caution residents that it's unlawful to dump snow from private driveways onto the road Minnesota Statute Chapter 160.2715, Subdivision (a) (1). Under civil law, the person dumping snow on the road is liable for any accident that may be caused by it.

Anyone dumping snow onto the highway or on the shoulder of the highway should be advised that it is extremely hazardous for the plowing crew and others because the compact nature of the pile may cause the operator to temporarily lose control of the vehicle.
