Shoveling your driveway

As a homeowner, you are responsible to clear the opening of your driveway.

During and after a storm, MassDOT's snow plows work to plow the state-maintained roadways. When plowing, our crews do their best to make sure they minimize the amount of snow that gets plowed into your driveway. However, some of the snow may end up at the opening of your driveway.

The best way to shovel your driveway is to start at the opening and shovel snow in the direction of traffic. To do so, face the road your driveway opens to and shovel all snow to the right. It is also important that you shovel your driveway after the plow has been by, if possible. This prevents you from having to do double the work.
