[ARCHIVED] Snow Reminders


Due to the significant amount of snow Wheaton has received in the past 24 hours, the City of Wheaton asks you to please remember a few things about snow removal. 

Crews are continuing to work to clear all streets throughout the city. Snow removal is performed in order of priority areas:

  • Priority 1: Main thoroughfares, high-volume areas and potentially dangerous areas such as railroad crossings, school zones, curves, bridges, and intersections
  • Priority 2: Secondary and residential streets
  • Priority 3: Cul-de-sacs and dead-ends will be the last areas plowed since pickup trucks rather than large snow plows must be used

Please do not plow, blow or shovel snow into the street. When you move snow onto the street, it not only hinders the efforts of City crews who are trying to keep roadways clear, it also creates a safety hazard for other drivers. When plowing or using a plowing service, depositing snow onto opposite parkways is prohibited. These are violations of city ordinances, and violations can result in fines.

If you can, please help keep fire hydrants clear near your home. 

If you need to contact the City's Snow Dispatch Center, call 630-260-SNOW. 

For more information, see the Snow Removal section of the City's website.

Thank you for your patience as crews continue working to clear Wheaton streets.
