How to Keep Your Driveway Entrance
From Filling with Snow

Throughout the winter months, State, County, and City snowplow crews will be out clearing the highways, roads, and streets during and after each snowfall. Homeowners and other property owners will be clearing their driveways at the same time.

Many times, while this is going on, a snowplow truck will go by and fill in the end of a freshly cleared private driveway with snow from the roadway. This is not intentional, and there is a way this wintertime inconvenience can be minimized.

The diagram below shows how you can clear snow around the end of your driveway, opening a certain way to reduce the possibility that you will have to do very much re-clearing after a snowplow truck goes by on the road next to your driveway.

The idea is to place as much snow as possible when clearing your driveway, in the direction of travel downstream on your side of the roadway. Next is to clear an area upstream from your driveway opening to form a "pocket" for the snow from the roadway to go into instead of at the end of your driveway.

The result is more of the snow accumulation from clearing the roadway will go into this open pocket area and less will wind up at the end of your driveway.

A note of caution is in order: please be extremely careful, when working next to the roadway, especially when snowplowing operations are in progress.
