Snow and Ice Policy

In order to ensure the safety of our citizenry during times of harsh weather conditions, Benton County has created a priority plan for clearing roads of snow and ice.  Roads will be cleared and maintained based on their service level. Service levels are based on the road's functional classification, traffic volumes, availability of alternate routes, potentially hazardous areas, ability of County equipment to maneuver, emergency vehicle accessibility, and school bus routes.  For a detailed description of County policy, please review the document attached below.
