Why do the snowplows sometimes come by a second time and leave a windrow of snow on the end of my driveway after I’ve already shoveled it?
The width of some Town roadways requires more than one pass in each direction to fully clear the roadway. To ensure that plowing operations keep pace with snow accumulations during heavy snowfall, roadways are cleared only to the necessary width to allow vehicles to safely pass. This will require that the plow return to these roadways as time permits to make additional passes to fully clear the roadway. Depending upon the storm, this may not take place until the day after the storm.
