Winter Trail Management

Over 93 miles of boulevard trails and sidewalks will be plowed during the winter season.  All winter trail maintenance is performed by City personnel after roadway snow removal operations are complete.  Snow removal operations on trails and sidewalks is performed by City personnel during the standard work day and limited overtime hours, as directed by the Transportation Operations Engineer or his designee.  For safety reasons, no operator works more than a twelve-hour shift in any twenty-four hour period.

This map shows the 2023-2024 Trail Plow Routes.
