Preparing for Snow in Victoria

City of Victoria Public Works - Preparing for Snow in Victoria - City Guide

A snow event is when 2 or more inches of snow falls on the ground in Victoria.

  • Plow operators hit the streets after a snow event begins and continue until all streets are plowed.
  • The center of the roadway is plowed first, then passes are made in each direction. Widening and cleanup operations may continue the same day or resume the next day, depending upon the conditions.
  • There are approximately 90 lane miles of streets and roads as well as about 38 miles of trails that are maintained by City of Victoria Public Works.

Prepare for winter in Victoria with a few reminders about snow maintenance.

  • Parking on the street is prohibited from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. after two inches or more of snow falls until the street is plowed from curb to curb.
  • Do not shovel or blow snow from driveways back into the street.
  • Residents are responsible for removing snow from the sidewalks in front of or on the side of their property within 24 hours of snowfall.
  • Garbage and recycling bins should not be placed past the curb line on the street or road to ensure City maintenance vehicles can pass safely.
