When winter weather hits Jackson, crews from the Department of Public Works (DPW) are out in salt and plow trucks making sure streets are safe for drivers. The DPW targets major roads and emergency snow routes first, then start clearing neighborhood streets. The City's snow plow map is available on the City website.
When there is a winter weather event, the City of Jackson asks residents to please remove parked vehicles from streets so crews have enough space to safely clear roadways. Residents should also be prepared for a City Snow Emergency.
An official Snow Emergency declaration from the City means residents are asked to remove parked vehicles, or in some extreme cases, stay off streets entirely until they can be cleared. The City will inform residents about these emergencies through local media outlets, the City website, social media, and the CodeRED mass communication system.
It's also important for drivers to give plow/salt trucks plenty of room when they're out on the road. Keeping a safe distance will help ensure safety for you, the driver and those around you.
