Lowell Snow Tips

Lowell Snow Tips 

 Town ordinance prohibits parking any vehicle on the paved and traveled portion of any street within the town for a period of 12 hours after a snowfall of two or more inches. 

Lowell categorizes its roads as either main or arterial roads, secondary or residential through streets, and cul-de-sac and dead-end streets. Top priority is given to the main or arterial roads. These streets are cleared first to move the heaviest volumes of traffic. 

When clearing the driveway, residents should place snow on either side of the drive, on the lawn and never in a recently plowed street. This is an ordinance violation and you may be ticketed. 

Residents should keep garbage cans and recycle bins from rolling into the street on garbage pick up day. 

Digging from the street, clear out fire hydrants near your home so that fire personnel can easily access them. 

Clear the snow from storm sewers in front of your home so melting snow can easily drain, preventing ice patches. 

Remind school-age children of the hazards of slippery streets, sidewalks and accumulated snow on corners. Make sure children stand away from the street until the school bus comes to a complete stop. 

Communicate with the Street Department. Report any ice formations on the street so that they can be salted. 

Residents who have already called about a legitimate driving hazard need only call once. The Street Department responds to all calls. However, this takes some time and it is impossible for every inquiry to be first. If it is a police/fire/medical emergency, dial 9-1-1 

Please be patient. Remember that the town has miles of roads to plow, & clearing that amount takes time. Every storm is different with many variables. 

Streets may need to be plowed more than once.
