Snow Plowing

The safety of our Highland City residents during and after a snow event is a major concern. Our Public Works department utilizes all available assets as needed to clear the roads depending on the storm event, snowfall received, and duration of the storm.

Salt and sand are used only to provide traction at intersections as well as other problematic locations as needed.

Snow Plowing Priority
Please see the attached map below for snow plowing priority. Street plowing priority is based on the road classification and usage intensity. Streets identified as arterial or collector roads, deemed to be in the minimum network needed to provide basic transportation for public safety, schools or steep grades will receive priority. These streets will be plowed 24 hours per day, 7 days a week when weather conditions warrant. When storm conditions have moderated, roads interior to subdivisions, including cul-de-sacs will be plowed. It may take anywhere from 3 to 5 days after the storm before crews are able to clear all of these areas.

There are three traffic corridors within Highland that fall under the jurisdiction of the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT). These roads are SR-92 (Timpanogos Highway/Canyon Road), SR-74 (Alpine Highway), and SR-129 (North County Boulevard). Questions and concerns regarding these roads are referred to the UDOT Region 3 offices at 801-227-8000.

Street Parking
Street parking is prohibited from December 1 to March 31 between the hours of 12:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. and any time snow is present to allow access to the plows for snow removal. The Police Department may issue parking citations or even have vehicles towed that are parked on the street during or shortly after a snow storm. Residents should also be mindful to keep all obstructions such as basketball hoops, trailers, trash cans, etc. off the streets during snow removal.

Clearing Driveways

Frequently we receive calls of snow being depositing at the end of driveways or in front of mailboxes by the plows. We understand that this is extremely frustrating to our residents. When snow is plowed to the side of the road the resulting windrow will flow into the newly shoveled drive approach. Because our first priority is to clear the road and create a safe travel way, it is not an option to raise the plow blade at every drive approach. We ask for your understanding and cooperation. Clearing a 10-foot area of the oncoming lane shoulder may help.
