Bluffton sets snow-plowing protocol

Should a significant amount of snow fall in Bluffton tonight, the city announced Friday the following plan for plowing.

While snow is falling and drifting, street crews will plow major arteries hourly to ensure that major routes are open to emergency traffic.

Those arteries are: Adams, Bond, Clark, East Dustman, Elm Grove, River, Lancaster, Madison, Market, Monroe, Silver, Spring, Stogdill, Wayne, Wabash, Western, Washington and Wiley.

The Indiana Department of Transportation is responsible for state routes, which are Main, West Dustman, Division and Harrison streets.

After the snow and winds subside, crews will begin clearing other streets.

The city said it takes about eight hours to plow every street one time.

“Plows are stationed in each section of the city; therefore, sections will be cleared simultaneously,” the city said.

Residents are asked to use off-street parking, if possible, to minimize the chance of accidental damage from plows. When clearing sidewalks and driveways, the city said, do not put snow into the streets.

Emergency information will be available at the city’s website, www.BlufftonIndiana.net.
