How Do You Keep Your Driveway From Being Plowed In?
As you shovel or blow snow, you should also clear an area to the right of your driveway. This gives the plow a place to empty the snow from its blade before the plow arrives at your driveway.
The Borough only maintains and plows Borough roads, not private or state roads. Portions of Main Street, 2nd Street, Campbell Road, And Constitution Avenue are maintained by Penn Dot. Also note that alleys are not “roads” by Penn Dot standards, but access routes, and are the last to be plowed.
