Upon establishing a Snow Emergency, DCR will notify the public via television and radio and establish a parking ban as early as possible. SmartRoutes, State Police Troop H in South Boston and Troop A in Danvers are notified as well.
The Storm Center is responsible for developing a storm plan for each individual storm event and collecting updated reports to facilitate effective internal communications and ensure smooth operations . Regional staff will call in status reports by parkway routes and sidewalk reporting units to the Storm Center periodically.
All snow removal locations are prioritized according to the following categories:
Level 1 (during storm event):
Level 2 (dedication of snow removal resources within first 12 hours after storm event):
Level 3 (snow removal response may occur beyond first 12 hours after storm event):
These less traveled sidewalks, cross walks and multi-use paths may be cleared as specific public safety needs warrant. As resources allow, DCR will attempt to address Level 3 priorities by focusing on sidewalks without immediate abutters. DCR anticipates the continued cooperation from abutters in clearing the remainder of Level 3 priority sidewalks consistent with municipal ordinances within the metropolitan Boston area.
** (Note: The sidewalk category symbol on the DCR online viewer includes sidewalks, pathways and multi-use paths parallel to parkways and the South West Corridor Bike Path and the Charles River Bike Paths.)
