Why is my street always plowed last?
During a general call-out, plowing or ice control operation, a priority has been established. Priority will be given to all main roads (Class I). All other roads (Class II) will be serviced as soon as main roads have been cleared and deemed safe. Since there is less traffic on weekends, the time frame to have all roads cleared may be slightly later. In most cases, this will mean that the streets will be passable. Clean-up, which includes widening, will be done as soon as possible after making the initial pass. Depending on what class of road the patrol worker maintains, the severity of the storm will determine the extent of attention the particular route will receive. Highway is responsible for both main roads and residential roads. Questions regarding patrol route coverage can be directed to the Highway Division at (262) 782-5029, Monday - Friday, 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. Voice mail will also take off-hour calls. Calls for emergency situations can also be directed to the Police by dialing the Waukesha County Communications Center at (262) 446-5070.
