Snowplow, plowing up a neighborhood street.

Reminder for when the Snow Falls

Below is a reminder that was shared by the City of West Lafayette and applies to any snowfall with accumulation:

With the snowfall today please avoid parking in the streets.

The Street Department closely monitors conditions and pre-treats roads when there is a possibility of snow or ice. Pre-treat loses effectiveness when rain precedes snow events. Plowing and salt operations begin once snow or ice accumulate on the streets.

Please help us by following these guidelines:

  • Keep streets clear of cars, basketball goals, etc. for full plowing access.
  • While driving, yield to snowplows – they are considered emergency vehicles.
  • Please be patient with our crew members – plowing order: main highways and streets, neighborhoods, and cul-de-sacs.
  • Shovel your sidewalk and driveway into your yard – not the streets. This will minimize the amount of snow in your driveway.
  • Clear snow away from mailboxes for mail delivery.

Designated Snow Routes Include:

  • Airport Road
  • Cherry Lane
  • First, Second, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Streets (between Russell and University Streets)
  • Grant Street
  • Harrison Street/Williams Street (from Martin Jischke Drive to Grant Street)
  • MacArther Drive (between State Street and Nimitz Drive)
  • Russell Street (between Stadium Avenue and Harrison Street)
  • Stadium Avenue west of Grant Street
  • State Street
  • Waldron Street
