[ARCHIVED] Bismarck Snow Removal Operations Prepare for Potential Winter Storm

The City of Bismarck City Roads and Streets Department is preparing for a potential winter storm  this weekend.

As the winter storm begins, snow plows will be working 24 hours a day, on emergency routes and major arterial streets to keep them open.  Blowing and drifting snow will be an issue with this storm.  City crews will work with emergency managers as a resource in emergency situations.  Once the storm is passed and these routes are open, plows will move into residential areas, if we receive over 4 inches of snow, or as needed due to blowing and drifting.

A reminder to businesses and residents:

Please move vehicles off streets to aid in snow removal operations.

According to City Ordinance a person may not move, dump or deposit by any means any snow or ice accumulated on private property onto any public street, alley, or public right-of-way. The fine for this violation is up to $1,000.


It is the property owner’s responsibility to clear snow around their mailbox.  For cluster boxes, it is the responsibility of all the mail recipients to clear the snow from around the box.
