Snow Operations
For details on Extreme Weather and Road Conditions as well as other wintertime information please use the menu to the left. 

Public Works Department staff begin preparing for snow plowing operations in late August each year. The mission of the department Snow Command Team is to keep Orland Park streets free of snow and ice during and after all snow storms, regardless of the magnitude of the storm.

Mobilization
When a storm begins, day or night, Public Works crews are promptly mobilized and dispatched. The type of storm, anticipated accumulation, expected duration and other variables such as wind, drifting and temperature dictates how our specific snow plowing operations will progress.

With ice or small snow accumulation snow plowing and salting at the same time will generally clear the roadways. With heavier snow or long duration storms the concentration is on keeping the roadways open. Once the storm has ended the roads will be cleared from curb to curb and followed up with salt.
