Snow Plow Season Is Here

Snow Plow

Anti-icing of the roadways in Roselle typically begins before a snowfall, with the application of brine, a liquid anti-icing salt solution. Rows of white, chalky lines are created on the roads during the brine application process. The brine application provides additional time before the snow and ice begin to build up on the pavement. Brine is not applied to the streets if rain is predicted before the snow, as it would be washed off the pavement before becoming effective. Once the snow starts falling, Public Works typically begins plowing operations after two inches of snow has fallen, or sooner if road condition reports indicate the need. 

All vehicles must be removed from the street any time a snow fall of 3 or more inches of snow occurs. Please remember to exercise caution when driving in snowy and icy conditions. With the exception of Central Avenue, all of the local roads in Roselle have a posted speed limit of 30 miles per hour or less. 

Please use the Village’s Snow Plow Condition Report Form to provide feedback on areas that need to be plowed or salted, or to report mailbox damage from plowing operations.

More information about the Village's winter weather operations is available on the Winter Weather Roads & Safety page.
