Why isn't my subdivision getting plowed right away?

Jefferson County has over 700 miles of road to clear and each plow driver has an assigned section which will take 12 to 14 hours to clear. Therefore, it depends on where within the assigned section a resident lives as to how soon a plow gets to the area.

During an extreme event, roads are cleared on a priority basis: (1) Major collector roads; (2) Minor collector roads; (3) Rural roads; (4) Subdivision streets; and (5) Dirt roads.
