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.

For all properties on nuisance lists, demo lists, etc. The township does not have control of these. If you are interested in one of these properties, you should review the Montgomery County Treasures depositor foreclosure program.

Harrison Township crews clear approximately 91 miles of roadway during a snow/ice event. The service department starts by clearing priority roads (heavily traveled roads, hills and school zones) then start on all secondary roads implementing a predetermined pattern to maximize efficiency.

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 (3 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.

It would be time-consuming for our large salt/plow truck to plow all of the Cul-De-Sacs in the township. We have smaller pick-up trucks with snow plows that clear the snow more efficiently and in some cases will arrive before the salt/plow truck.
When the Sheriff’s office or our supervisors determine the roadways are becoming unsafe we call the crew’s in to treat the roadways anytime day or night.
In a typical snow event requiring salt only (two inches of snow or less), it takes approximately four hours to clear all of our roadways in Harrison Township. In a heavy snow event (three inches of snow or more) it will take a minimum of eight hours to clear the roadways. These times could change based on extreme conditions such as heavy ice and high winds.
