The City of Wickliffe makes great effort to ensure streets are safe during all snow and ice events. Our crews are “on call” 24/7 and are tasked with keeping over 98 lane miles of roadway clear during each weather event. The city will salt and remove snow from dedicated streets as needed. Approximately 2,000 tons of road salt was applied in the 2022/2023 season. Hills, curves, and bridges are monitored and treated as necessary throughout an event. All dedicated streets within Wickliffe receive snow removal service according to the following priorities that have been established based on traffic volumes and speeds.
Main roads are plowed first to ensure emergency vehicles can move properly in and out of the city. These streets will continue to receive treatment as long as weather conditions continue.
Secondary streets and main roads through subdivisions are priority 2. These streets will be plowed and salted once Priority 1 streets have received treatment.
Residential streets, courts, cul-de-sacs, public parking lots and buildings will be serviced once Priority 1 and Priority 2 streets are cleared.
In addition to all City roadways, the Service Department also plows all building and park parking lots, walking paths, and main and school zone sidewalks. The Service Department also clears aprons for senior residents who qualify according to a program created many years ago.
