Removing snow from Township roads is one of the most important jobs performed by our work crews. The Haverford Township Department of Public Works keeps Township roads clean and safe following a snowfall by plowing roadways and using chemical treatments that melt snow and ice from the pavement.

Roads are cleaned in priority order, beginning first with major arteries, then moving to secondary roadways, and finally cleaning residential streets.

The department makes every effort to keep all Township roads clean, but in cases of unpredicted or quickly falling snow it may take time for crews to make it to residential roads. The Department of Public Works is responsible for 132 miles of roadway.
