The Streets Division is responsible for the preparation and salting of roads prior to snow events. During snow events, snow removal must begin, and streets personnel work to plow town roads, 38 miles of sidewalks, and cross walks. After snow events have ended, the streets division is still working to remove remaining snow and ice to ensure the safety of all Danvers residents and visitors. Although the majority of snowplowing and snow removal work is performed by the DPW, the department also utilizes the services of local contractors to assist the Town's fleet.
Town officials announce the winter parking ban for the 2022-2023 season. The winter parking is intended to keep streets open and safe, allowing the DPW crews to remove snow during winter storm events properly. Residents are encouraged to plan ahead for alternative off-street parking. Included below is key information about the winter parking ban.
