Do not shovel, plow, push or throw your driveway snow onto the public (or private) roadway out front as this will create a hazardous surface when traffic passes over it. And don’t try to push it all the way to the other side. That would likely create a narrowed area in the road at that location so it’ll be dangerous for vehicles traveling in opposite directions to pass there. (Be sure your plowing contractor** honors these restrictions too; you’re responsible for his actions).
A note of caution is in order. Please be extremely careful when working next to the roadway—especially when snowplowing operations are in progress.
The following information will help residents to understand the snow removal policy and what is expected from them
Michigan winters can be very difficult and presents the Livingston County Road Commission with one of its greatest challenges. Often snow, sleet, ice, freezing rain and rain create difficult and hazardous driving conditions. The Road Commission takes great pride in meeting those challenges head on. The goal is to provide the safest and most efficient snow routes and removal possible.
It is the hope of the Livingston County Road Commission to work in conjunction with all residents to make our community a safer place to live and work.
