Roadway Snow Removal Information & Reminders

Woodridge Snow Removal Information and Reminders:

  • Snow is plowed from the center of a roadway towards the parkway. Unfortunately, the ends of homeowner’s driveways are also in this location. Trying to direct the plow away from each driveway as the plow passes is not manageable – there are well over 10,000 driveways in the Village – and it would result in snow left in the street.
  • On each street, multiple passes of the snow plow are needed in each direction just to clear snow from the center of the roadway to the edge. Passes near the edge of the road will result in snow coming off of the plow blade and unavoidably being deposited on parkways and driveways.
  • Remember that on-street parking is prohibited any time after 2” of snowfall and between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. everyday. Observing these restrictions is important to give snow plows the room they need to maneuver.
  • Remove empty refuse containers from the curb as soon as possible in order to avoid contact with the snowplows.
