CDA Snow Update

Wet, slushy snow conditions are causing delays for Coeur d'Alene Street Department personnel plowing residential areas. Crews are working 24/7 with four loader snow gate & grader residential plow teams on days, and three loader/snow gate & grader plow teams on nights.

Truck plows are used on arterials, hills, collectors, and emergency routes, and DO NOT have snow gates. Snow gates only reduce berms in driveways – they do not eliminate the berm.

Subdivisions in the north part of the city generally receive more wind and drifted snow, and have some streets that are narrower. Street crews hope to have all residential areas plowed by today, but equipment does break down and this process is slow.
