About Snow Removal in the City
CITY OF MOAB SNOW REMOVAL INFORMATION
Please Wait 24 Hours After a Storm Before Calling
Please wait at least 24 hours after a storm ends to request plow service. Our drivers follow the priority plow route below for safety and efficiency. It's inefficient to pull drivers off the scheduled route to address individual complaints. Thank you for your patience.
City Street Priority Categories
Priority One: Primary streets, such as arterials and major collectors, that are determined to be the minimum network needed to provide the basic transportation system for public safety, schools, high volume streets, steep grades, etc.
Priority Two: Secondary and residential routes and selected minor collectors, bus routes and residential streets deemed desirable to be maintained as weather permits. Traffic lanes only. Areas that are prone to wind and drifting snow will receive priority.
Priority Three: Remaining city streets, including cul-de-sacs. Traffic lanes only, provided no cars are parked in the roadway.
If another storm hits before all streets have been cleared, the process starts over from the beginning with the priority one streets.
Note: Please note that it is not the position of Moab City to maintain a bare pavement policy nor to provide snow and ice removal on every city street during or after every snowstorm. Therefore, after periods in which movement of traffic has occurred, snowplows no longer become an option to totally clear snow-packed or icy streets, except to remove loose material on top.
