Winter Snow Plowing Season Is Here


The Cleveland Heights Service Department is armed and ready for this year’s winter snow plowing season. During heavy snowfall events, plow trucks are usually diverted onto the main streets first. Once main streets are safe and passable, trucks then proceed to plow secondary side streets.

In order to ensure a safe and successful season clearing the City’s roadways, the department asks that residents and motorists observe the following guidelines:

  •  Do not attempt to pass plow trucks.
  • Do not follow closer than 25 feet from the rear of a plow truck.
  • Use caution and slow your speed when driving on freshly fallen snow and/or snow that has not been plowed.
  • Please do not throw snow from driveways and sidewalks into
    the street.

Always be prepared for driving in winter conditions. Motorists should:

  • Check the tires on your vehicle to ensure that they are properly inflated and have a safe tread depth. It is recommended that motorists maintain a minimum of 5/32” to ensure traction and tire adhesion to wet or snowy roads.
  • Check to ensure that you have working/functional windshield wipers.
  • Check your windshield washer fluid levels.
  • Carry an extra pair of gloves, a winter hat, and a small shovel.
  • in the vehicle in the event that your car gets stuck in the snow.
  • Check your vehicles lights to ensure that all headlamps, tail lamps, brake lights, turn signals and flashers are in proper working order.
  • Should your car become stuck on the road, NEVER exit the vehicle abruptly.
  • Keep your cellular phone charged and on hand at all times.

The Service Department looks forward to serving you this upcoming winter season. For questions or concerns, contact the Cleveland Heights Service Department at 216-691-7300 or
