The Shorewood Public Works Department is responsible for providing snow and ice control for approximately 80 miles of roadways. There are 136 cul-de-sacs, 6 Village-owned parking lots, and one community park and ride that are encompassed in the area served.
During a snowstorm event, crews are dispatched to begin clearing streets according to the following priorities:
- First Priority Street Routes - Streets that lead directly onto state and county primary transportation arteries.
- Second Priority Street Routes - Streets that lead directly onto first priority street routes and indirectly into primary transportation arteries.
- Third Priority Street Routes - Streets that include dead-ends, cul-de-sacs, eyebrows, etc.
We ask that you do not shovel, plow, or blow snow from your sidewalks into or across Village Streets. Doing so may impede the flow of vehicular traffic. (Ordinance #4-2-6)
There is no parking on all Village streets when snow accumulates over 2" to allow for plowing. (Ordinance #11-13-11).
