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. Novi's DPW crews maintain all public roads in the city, except those maintained by the Road Commission for Oakland County and the Michigan Department of Transportation. The City does not provide winter maintenance on these roads: Haggerty Road, Eight Mile Road, Napier Road, Pontiac Trail, Fourteen Mile Road, 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.
Category 1 - Snowfall Less Than or Equal to 3 Inches
Category 2 - Snowfall Greater Than 3 Inches
