Why does the snowplow come back and fill in my driveway after I’ve already cleaned it?

During heavy snowfalls, snowplowing is accomplished in three
separate operations:

  • The first pass is intended to provide an initial access path
  • Full-width widening can occur several hours
    later after all streets have received a first pass
  • Final cleanup occurs the next day and provides for intersection cleanup, salting, and plowing where “vehicles” were parked

Homeowners are responsible for clearing out their own driveways.
