Snow Removal Information
About the Snow Management Plan
Upper Merion Township recognizes the importance of snow removal, not only to residents, but to everyone who needs to travel to or through our community. The township utilizes a snow management plan to safely clear all public roads within the township quickly and efficiently. Based on traffic flow, roads are divided into primary (main), secondary (collector and through), and tertiary (dead-end and cul-de-sac) roads.

Snow Emergencies
When a snow emergency has been declared, the township activates its Snow Operations Center at the Public Works Yard. The center is staffed by employees who are in contact with all snow removal crews.

The township now provides snow removal progress information in the form of an interactive map. The updates of the plowing progress will only begin after the snow stops falling and the crews are in final clean-up mode. The status will be updated every 15 minutes and will continue until the cleanup is completed.
