Snow Plow Notice
The City of Soda Springs understands the challenges of winter and greatly appreciates the cooperation of all City Residents. Remember to be considerate of your neighbor's property and needs.
When removing snow from your driveway, please do not push it across the street or deposit snow in the street. Snow is required to be placed on your property.
Reminder: City Code does not allow overnight parking on City Streets. Please do not leave cars, trucks, trailers, or any other obstruction parked on the street overnight. This allows for easier and more efficient early morning plowing. Vehicles can be towed without notice if they interfere with snow removal.
The City starts removing snow from the City Streets when 4 inches of snow has accumulated on the roads. We strive to clear all first-priority roads within 24 hours following a storm and all remaining streets within 48 hours.
During ongoing, severe storms, emergency services and school bus routes will take precedence for safety reasons. Once the storm begins to subside, crews will move on to business areas, inner subdivision streets, and cul-de-sacs. Please be patient; reaching every street in a major storm may take a little longer.
Priority 1: emergency services, school zones, business areas, and high-traffic roadways receive top plowing priority. As long as the snow keeps falling, the City's priority is to keep the main roads open and passable. Once these streets are clear, crews proceed to second- and third-priority streets.
Priority 2: Streets through residential subdivisions, including roads connecting to a collector street, are second priority. Since crews have to clear priority streets first, residential streets may not be plowed until after the snowstorm has subsided.
Priority 3: Cul-de-sacs, circles, and dead-end streets have the lowest priority of snow removal and are cleared last because of low traffic volume on these roads, along with the airport, shooting range, and park parking lots. This could take 48 hours or longer after a significant storm ends.
Private lanes and private streets are not plowed.
Berming is an inconvenient result of plowing. Property owners are responsible for clearing the berm to gain access to the roadway.
