Where Is Your Street on the Battle Creek Snowplow Pecking Order?
When it snows in Battle Creek, do you know which streets get plowed first and who has to wait, perhaps days to see a plow?
The City of Battle Creek's latest social media "Snowtification" is out, reminding residents of the priorities for snowplowing in the city. Here they are:
1) State trunklines (34 miles) and major roads (90 miles)
2) Battle Creek Transit routes and areas around our schools
3) Residential/local streets (205 miles)
4) Alleys and cul-de-sacs
The city asks residents to be patient after a snowstorm, while plows follow this order of snow removal priority.
In the post, city officials ask residents to be patient.
"After a snow, please hang in there. Our crews work hard to get to everyone as quickly as possible," the post reads.
