In an average winter, Public Works crews plow city streets about 25 times. Each time they are called out, plow operators clear the equivalent of 699 miles of one-lane roadway and 517 cul-de-sacs.
Plowing activities begin whenever conditions make driving difficult. Depending on conditions, city crews typically start plowing by 2 a.m. This is the time when Woodbury's winter parking ordinance requires that all vehicles must be off the public streets.
