Emergency Snow Routes

Emergency Snow Routes

If you park on an emergency snow route, be especially aware of weather conditions. After two inches of snow has fallen (day or night), the Street Division may plow. All vehicles parked on emergency snow routes are subject to ticketing and towing.

Although the Street Division will attempt to warn the public through the media, this is not always possible. Tune to local radio and television stations and monitor this website at www.siouxfalls.org/snow for the latest in snow removal information.

Secondary Snow Routes

These routes are mainly in residential areas and were designated to allow the public better access to emergency snow routes. Any vehicles on the streets will be subject to ticketing and towing when a snow alert has been issued. For a complete list of streets designated as emergency and secondary snow routes, click on the map at right or contact the Street Division at 367-8255.
