Snow Emergency

All Snow Emergency rules, including no parking in cul de sacs and no parking on the snow emergency route roads are in effect when official SNOW EMERGENCIES are announced. Civil and municipal services and operations are predicated on open roadways. The Township road system is divided into three priorities. The priorities establish the order that roads are cleared.

  • Priority I roads are the main arteries throughout the Township.
  • Priority II roads are connected to the main arteries throughout the Township.
  • Priority III roads are all other secondary roads and cul-de-sacs.

All road operations are conducted from the Highway Division Office, 610-726-7127. Call the Office about a road condition and the information will immediately be dispatched to a truck in your district. Please be patient because in terms of mileage, Priority I and II roads comprise a greater percentage than Priority III roads. Help us help you: Snow Emergency Tips

Cars will be towed from Snow Emergency Routes. It should also be stressed that anyone putting snow into the Right-of-Way (ROW, i.e a street) will be fined for obstructing the ROW.

Plowing Onto Roadways - Residents and contractors are reminded that it is illegal to deposit snow onto public roads. All snow shoveled and plowed must remain on your property.

Municipal Parking Lots and Sidewalks - After completion of road operations, Township crews are scheduled to clear municipal lots, typically between 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM. In addition, Township-owned sidewalks will be cleared at the same time. Residents and business owners are reminded that, by ordinance, all private sidewalks are to be shoveled with a 36 inch path within 24 hours after a snowfall.

Power Outages - Citizens experiencing a gas or electric problem should contact PECO directly at 1-800-841-4141. Reporting gas and electric outages to this number assures that the specific address is added to the database which is used to determine which locations will be prioritized for repair crew response.
