SDOT releases snow priority route map

November 2nd, 2010 by master

Ever wonder why SDOT plows some streets during a snow storm and not others? Each year, the city releases a map detailing which streets will get level one priority (achieve bare and wet pavement on all lanes), level two priority (achieve bare and wet pavement on one lane in each direction), and level three (curves, hills and stopping zones treated). The goal is to keep major arterials and bus routes clear, but that means most residential streets won’t see a plow.

Around Wallingford,  Stone Way, 45th, 5oth, and Latona are all level two streets.  Wallingford Ave is level three.  You can check out the citywide map or take a look at the map for Wallingford.
