Order of Plowing
When snow falls, City plowing crews focus first on the main roads, such as Kirkwood Road, Geyer Road, Essex, Woodlawn, Woodbine, Couch, etc. Cleaning these streets first allows emergency vehicles to get through when needed. During this first stage, street crews also work on hills and bridges. Crews do not begin to work on secondary streets until the snow stops.
Secondary streets include Taylor, Fillmore, Dickson, Quan, Rose Hill, Clay, Lindeman, Harrison, Peeke, and Ann. When all those are done, crews move to subdivision streets and clear those. Pre-Treating: When possible, crews pre-treat all City streets when a storm has been predicted. However, in some storms, when the temperatures are very low, pretreating may not work very well.
There are some streets we do not maintain, including all the streets maintained by MoDOT and St. Louis County, such as Manchester, Big Bend, the portions of Kirkwood Road/Lindbergh that are north of Swan and south of Big Bend, a portion of Ballas, and all of Adams.
