All you need to know....about SNOW (and its removal!)

The City of Novi's Department of Public Works provides snow and ice removal services to maintain safe conditions for motorists, as well as for pedestrians on City-owned property. This winter, Novi's DPW crews will maintain all public roads in the city, except those maintained by the Road Commission for Oakland County (Haggerty Road, Eight Mile Road, Napier Road, Pontiac Trail, and Fourteen Mile Road), and the Michigan Department of Transportation (I-96, I-696, I-275, and M-5).

DPW follows these established priorities to systematically remove snow and ice from City roads:

  • Major roads, neighborhood entrances/exits, and municipal parking lots.
  • Residential streets.
  • Non-Motorized routes abutting city-owned property.

Anti-Icing Program

Road treated with de-icingHave you ever wondered what those wet stripes are that you sometimes see on the roads during the winter months? They are actually part of our winter anti-icing program and one of the winter maintenance tools that DPW uses even if snow isn’t in the forecast. The liquid is a solution of saltwater (or brine) and de-sugared beet extract which is applied to roads as a precautionary measure to address roads that may become slippery later.
