Priority Plowing System
The city has established a priority plowing system to help traffic move as efficiently and safely as possible.
There are a number of roads within the city that are plowed and salted by the Illinois Department of Transportation, including Route 171 (State Street / Archer Avenue), Route 53 (Broadway), and Route 7 (159th Street / 9th Street), including the high level bridge. Will County plows Division Street east of Briggs and Briggs Street south of Division.

Snow Parking Ordinance
City Ordinance 70.27 states that "no person shall park any vehicle upon public streets at any time after snow begins to fall and for a period of eight hours after snow stops falling on the streets and public parking lots. If the snow on the street exceeds two inches in depth, the parking prohibition shall continue until snow removal operations are complete."
