The snowplow truck must clear the roadway. The snowplow by design moves the snow from the roadway to the right side of the roadway leaving the snow in front of the driveways and along with the properties. In heavy snow (three or more inches) our snowplow trucks will make two passes, we recommend if possible you wait to clear your driveway until after those passes have been made. If you cannot wait to clear your driveway, we recommend that you place the snow from your driveway apron on the right side as you approach the street, this will decrease the volume of snow placed back into your driveway apron by the snowplow truck.
Harrison Township clears approximately 90 miles of the roadway during a snow/ice event. We start by clearing priority roads (heavily traveled roads, hills, and school zones) then start on all secondary roads implementing a predetermined pattern to maximize efficiency.
