Tips to Keep Your Driveway Clear After a Snowfall

The DPW's top priority in a snowstorm is plowing roads, which may require several trips down the same route. Snow plowed from roads could end up blocking private driveways for some time. 

To reduce the amount of snow that might block your driveway, shovel an open area along the shoulder at the entrance (see video below courtesy of the Missouri Department of Transportation). Plow blades will then push snow into the area just before your driveway, leaving a much smaller amount in front of it.
