The City of Springdale Public Works Department's main priority during the winter months is to provide a safe roadway system for motorists. The City is responsible for maintaining 136.51 lane miles within a 5 square-mile area.
We ask for your patience as we work to open the streets back up after inclement weather. Accuracy of weather forecasts, the amount of snow/ice, how fast it falls, temperatures, equipment issues, parked cars, and volume of traffic all affect the City's ability to clear the roads. Crews work very hard to clear the roads and make them safe. City crews treat every route with the same priority and work to get them cleaned as quickly as possible.
The City of Springdale generally follows the City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County Snow Emergency levels as announced by the Hamilton County Sherriff's Office:
Level I Snow Alert: Roadways
are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow. Residents are asked to move
parked cars from the roadway to aid in snow removal.
Level II Snow Advisory: Roadways are hazardous with blowing and
drifting snow. Only those who feel it is necessary to drive should be out
on the roadways. Contact your employer to see if you should report to
work. No Parking on Snow Emergency Routes. Cars may be ticketed and towed.
Level III Snow
Emergency: All Municipal, Township,
County, and State roadways are closed to non-emergency personnel. No one should
be out during these conditions unless it is absolutely necessary to travel.
Those traveling on the roadways may subject themselves to arrest.
