Priority 1 - Arterial Roadways
These are major roadways with high traffic volumes and high operating speeds that provide critical transportation and emergency access and links within the County. The majority of the County's snow removal equipment is needed to keep arterial roadways safe for travel. Crews will remain on arterial roadways until the snowstorm dissipates to ensure safe access for emergency vehicles, and provide adequate lane width for traffic, and minimize surface re-icing. There are 834 lane miles of arterial roadways considered to be a top priority for snow removal in the County's road network.
Emergency Facilities: access to fire stations, hospitals, Sheriff stations, and other emergency facilities are also plowed as a first priority.
