Information on Snow Removal
Plowing Map

During winter months it is important for Highland City and it's residents to work together. Highland City strives to provide expeditious and efficient snow removal during winter storm events. City crews work hard to provide a high level of service to residents when inclement road conditions exist. After a heavy snow storm, it may take as much as 48 hours to clear all priority routes and through streets once the storm has subsided. Vehicles parked on the street make it difficult for plows to clear snow. Residents are cautioned that it is unlawful to park any motor vehicle on a City street from December 1st to March 31st between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. and at any time snow is present. The Police Department may issue parking citations.

Please note that the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) plows SR-92, SR-74, and North County Blvd (4800 West).  They work as efficiently as possible during winter snow storms. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When will my cul-de-sac get plowed?
Cul-de-sacs are not plowed or salted until every thru-road has been cleared.  This can take anywhere
from 3-5 days after a storm has passed. 

When do I need to have the sidewalk around my property cleared of snow?
It is recommended that Highland City property owners clear adjacent sidewalks of snow within 24 hours after the end of the storm.

Where can I put the snow shoveled from my sidewalk and driveway? 
Residents should push or throw snow onto their own property.  It is illegal to throw or push any snow
into the street.  Putting snow into the streets can make the road more dangerous for automobiles and snowplows. 

Can I park my vehicle on the street during the winter season?
Vehicles may not park on City Streets between midnight and 8:00 a.m., December 1st through March
31st, or anytime snow is present. The Police Department may issue a parking citation, and may have
vehicles that are parking on the street towed. Parking on the street after a snow storm also makes it
difficult for plows to clear the streets.

When will the City remove snow form the walking trails? 
Once the snow has been removed from the streets crews will work to remove snow from the walking
trails and school sidewalk routes.

The snowplows push snow into my freshly cleared driveway.  Isn’t there a better way to clear the streets? 
This is an unfortunately situation that arises as the snow is cleared from streets. We recommend that
you push the snow to the right of your driveway as you face the street, and/or clear a 10' x 3' area
of the shoulder to the left of your driveway.  This may help to keep the snow from being pushed back
into your driveway.

How can our residents help? 

To help expedite clearing roads of snow and ice, Highland City asks for your help. You can assist our snow removal operators in several ways:

  1. Always park your vehicle off the street. Vehicles left in the roadway create hazardous obstacles which slow the process of properly clearing the road and is against Highland City ordinances.
  2. Keep obstructions such as portable basketball hoops, trash cans, and other personal property off the street and sidewalk during snow removal.
  3. Exercise extreme care and caution when driving in adverse and inclement weather. Your safety and the safety of other motorists and pedestrians is the highest priority.
  4. Travel at a safe distance from snow plows at all times. Do not try to pass these vehicles and please be patient.
  5. Limit and restrict travel unless absolutely necessary during severe weather.
  6. Many people use a 4-wheeler to plow their driveways and sidewalks; the Police Department reminds us that a 4-wheeler is not allowed on the street unless it is street legal.
