The Urbana Plan on Snow Removal

When the snow begins to fall, the City of Urbana Public Works Department snow crews are prepared to spring into action with a strategically organized snow removal plan designed to get the streets cleared and you on your way as quickly as possible. 

In heavy snow events, the City works around the clock towards this goal with a force of approximately 12 crew members per 12 hour period. The city has available 23 pieces of snow control equipment, a salt storage facility with a capacity of 1400 tons, and a snow budget averaging $140,000 annually to maintain approximately 300 lane miles of roadway in Urbana. Click here for more complete information about which streets are cleared first, what streets are maintained by other entities-like the township of the county-and what to expect in a snow event.
