City of Springfield Snow & Ice Removal

The Office of Public Works monitors over 600 miles of roads throughout Springfield focusing on primary roads, followed by secondary roads and trouble spots. Side streets in neighborhoods and subdivisions are tended to as weather and time permits. Primary streets are defined as main thoroughfares that connect the different quadrants of the city. Secondary streets are thoroughly traveled but serve as main routes to the primary streets.

The following information outlines the snow and ice removal procedure for the City of Springfield.
