Snow Removal

Overview of Services:

Snow removal crews are prepared to remove snow from November 1st through April 30th, 24 hours a day, if necessary. Crews will be called out after two inches of snow has accumulated on the roads. They will strive to achieve bare pavement on all first priority roads within 24 hours following a storm, and to clear all remaining streets within 48 hours following a storm.  Link to Salt Bring Deicing Program Information

Snow Plow Priorities:

  • Priority 1:

    High traffic roadways, school zones, hills, arterial and collector roads receive top plowing priority. As long as the snow keeps falling, the city's number one priority is to keep the main roads open and passable. Once these streets are clear, crews proceed to second and third-priority streets.  
  • Priority 2

    Streets through residential subdivisions including roads that connect back to a collector street. Since crews have to clear priority streets first, residential streets may not be plowed until after snowstorm has subsided.
  • Priority 3: Cul-de-sacs, circles and dead-end streets have the lowest priority of snow removal and will be cleared last. This could be 48 hours after a major storm ends. Please be patient as it may take a little longer to reach every street. 
  • Private lanes and private streets are not plowed by Draper City.
During ongoing, severe storms, main streets will take precedence for safety reasons. Once the storm begins to subside, crews will begin to move on to inner subdivision streets and cul-de-sacs.

Snow Removal Policies - Winter 2020

Snow & Ice Control Policies & Procedures

Winter On-Street Parking:

In order to facilitate snow removal and allow room for the snow plows, residents are not permitted to park a vehicle or trailer on the street from November 15th through April 15th between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. (Draper City Municipal Code Section 14-5-010)

The Police Department may issue a parking citation and/or have the vehicle towed at the owner's expense. To report parking violations in your area, contact the Draper City Police Department at (801) 840-4000.

Snow Blowing

Blowing, throwing or pushing snow from driveways and walkways into the street creates a traffic hazard and is a Draper City Code violation. Removed snow should be placed onto landscaped areas instead. (Draper City Municipal Code Section (7-13-030))


Circles and dead end streets have the lowest priority of snow removal and will be cleared last. This should be 48 hours after a major storm ends.
