Snow and Ice Removal

Farmington Hills provides snow and ice control for selected streets. Streets fall into one of three categories: major roads, school bus routes, and subdivision streets. Major roads and school bus routes receive the highest priority; they are plowed and salted following any accumulation of snow or ice. Local streets are plowed following accumulation of four inches or more of snow. If the accumulation is less than four inches, subdivision streets are spot salted, on hills, curves, and intersections.

Please do not shovel or snow blow snow from your driveways or sidewalks onto the roads. This provides a hazard for our walkers and drivers.

See if/when you streets are getting plowed at the Snow Plow Progress map.
