Snowplowing

Maple Grove plows approximately 300 miles of City roadway and 700 cul-de-sacs using various types of equipment. Plowing or salting operations begin when road conditions make driving difficult and are also dependent upon time of day, current snow depth, and forecast.  2005_1129Image0002.jpg

Arterial and collector streets are plowed on a priority basis followed by residential streets. Cul-de-sacs are plowed curb-to-curb using front-end loaders or smaller plow trucks after residential streets are cleared.

Plowing of sidewalks or paths near schools are given plowing precedence, followed by sidewalks adjacent to major thoroughfares and secondary pathways.  You may view a map of the sidewalks which are plowed by the city by clicking HERE.

  • Parking on City streets is prohibited following a snowfall of 2" or greater until the roadway has been cleared curb-to-curb.
  • Per MN State Statute, it is unlawful to plow snow onto the road.
  • Parking on City streets is prohibited from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m. year round.
  • Place all recycling or garbage bins 5' into the driveway to lessen the possibility of damage or tipping during snowplowing operations.
