The City's Public Works Department follows a priority system for removing snow and ice from the city's streets. Crews work 12-hour shifts throughout a winter storm to provide 24-hour coverage. The City has 8 trucks working to clear 258 miles of streets. 

Contact the Public Works Department at 913-385-4647 or with questions regarding snow removal.

Priority Level  Streets Treated  Details 
 1 Main Roadways Typically high traffic volume multilane roads (i.e. 75th St, Mission, Roe, Nall).     
 2 Collector streets  Typically two lane streets within neighborhoods (i.e. 79th St, 83rd St) 
 3 Residential Streets & Cul-de-sacs Plowed after snowfall and after Priority 1 and Priority 2 streets are cleared.  If plowing is not required, the City will spread materials only. 

*The City does not plow sidewalks or driveways unless it is part of city-owned property.

How You Can Help

  • Stay back at least 50 feet from the rear of a plow truck so the driver can see you.
  • Park your vehicles in your driveway.  If you must park on the street, park on the even-numbered side of the street. This allows public works crews to create a wider travel lane.
  • Avoid placing snow from your driveway onto the sidewalks
  • Clear sidewalks adjacent to your property. Property owners are responsible for removing ice and snow from the sidewalks abutting their property within 24 hours from the time that the snow or ice storm ends. The City does not plow sidewalks or driveways unless it is part of City-owned property.
