Winter In Roseville

"Winter in Roseville" with a picture of a snowplow in the background.

Hate it or love it - snow is flying here in Minnesota! Check out these winter tips and always remember to slow down and leave extra room between other vehicles during the winter season.

The city makes every effort to clear snow as quickly as possible after each snow event. Plows often operate overnight when fewer cars are on the road. Crews generally start with the most heavily trafficked roads before moving on to other roads, cul-de-sacs, and sidewalks.

WinterDriving.jpgOn-street Parking

On-street parking is prohibited by city code after 2 inches or more of continuous snowfall. When 2 inches of snow has accumulated, a parking ban immediately goes into effect. The parking ban lasts until streets have been plowed curb-to-curb. The city sends snowplow alerts via text and/or email in advance of every plow. Failure to move your vehicle could result in your vehicle being ticketed and towed. 

See Snowplows

Please stay alert and yield to snowplows. Snowplows weigh approximately 17 times more than cars, making it difficult to stop. An accident with a plow can result in significant injuries to a car’s occupants. Allow at least five car lengths between your vehicle and a snowplow, be mindful of snowplow blind spots, and avoid driving into a snow cloud created by a snowplow. 

Wait to clear the end of your driveway until your street has been plowed from curb to curb. Snowplows may plow snow from the road into driveways that have already been shoveled. 

Roseville Sustainability logoSustainability Tip: Salt Smart

A little salt goes a long way. It takes less than a 12-ounce coffee cup of salt to treat 1,000 square feet (about the size of a typical two-car driveway). Also, salt’s effectiveness lessens as temperatures drop. Salt will not melt ice if the pavement temperature is below 15 degrees. 

Garbage and Recycling Carts 

Consider weather conditions when putting your garbage and recycling carts out on collection day. Place carts at least five feet from vehicles, mailboxes, trees, bushes, and other objects. Carts should be placed back from the end of the driveway to avoid being struck by plows and other snow removal equipment. 

Shoveled HydrantFire Hydrants

In a fire emergency, could firefighters find the hydrant near your home? When shoveling snow, take time to shovel the snow from around the closest fire hydrant. This helps reduce the time it takes firefighters to hook up a hose if there is a fire in your neighborhood.
