Winter Season Information

Springfield Township’s Road Department is out and about plowing snow this winter season. The Township’s Road Department is responsible for plowing and salting of Township owned T. There nearly 60 miles of roadway for municipal crews to plow and each operator plows a set route. PennDOT crews are responsible for plowing state roads.
 
The Township asks that you please move your vehicles out of the street and cul-de-sac and onto private driveways so that plowing and salting operations can be done safely and efficiently. If you have any basketball nets near the street, please move them before they get damaged. If mailboxes have been inadvertently plowed in, the Township cannot go back and dig them out, as we cannot take the employees off the snow removal equipment to do that. It is very important that the roads be kept clear of snow and ice.
 
To avoid having your driveway plowed in with snow, wait until after the trucks pass to clear your driveway and/or shovel snow to the right side of the driveway, facing the road. This will help to reduce the amount of snow pushed back into your driveway during plowing. Do not throw snow from a sidewalk or driveway into the
roadway.
 
Please be safe this winter.

Report problems related to roads to the Township Office  via email/phone for Township Roads or PennDot for State Roads.   We appreciate the help in identifying downed trees, damaged/missing signs, etc.  The sooner we know, the sooner we can respond.
