When Will My Street Be Plowed? Sioux Falls Tracker and Snow Gates
The number one question asked over the last few days for Sioux Falls residents had to be, "When is my street going to be plowed?" The City Street Department had it's hands full when about a foot of snow fell Sunday and Monday of this week.
Sure, we took care of our driveways during the storm but then there's that dreaded wait for the snow plow to come through and push a 3-foot ridge of hard snow chunks at the end of the driveway.
It's a part of winter.
Did you know there is a Sioux Falls snow plow tracker that is constantly being updated to let you know when to expect the plow in your neighborhood? I didn't either...and I'll be using this from here on out. Check out the Sioux Falls Snow Plow Tracker here.
When does the city of Sioux Falls use snow gates?
Another great question. According to the City of Sioux Falls website, snow gates are used whenever there is a city-wide snow alert issued. There are a few exceptions to using snow gates during a snow event and you can find them here.
"The use of snow gates may be suspended during snow events in which the snow is greater or wetter than their use would be effective." ~ City of Sioux Falls
We're just guessing here but Old Man Winter may not be done with Sioux Falls for the season. We had a very dry fall and early part of winter which makes us think that Mother Nature has some catching up to do.
