Winter Snow and Ice
Clark County typically does not get that much snow and ice, but Public Works diligently works to keep roads open and passable during inclement weather.
Public Works is responsible for maintaining 2,665 lane miles, roughly the driving distance between Vancouver and Atlanta, and does not have the resources to clear snow and ice from every street.
Clark County focuses on the busiest roads to keep people, goods and services moving. Property owners are responsible for maintaining access to driveways and parking lots.
During heavy snowfall in early January 2017, county crews in a little more than three days:
- Plowed 9,220 lane miles.
- Spread 1.26 million pounds of gravel.
For more information about the county's response to January 2017 snow and post-storm cleanup and pavement repairs, watch this CVTV video.
