Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the 311 Response Center at 311 or 412-255-2621.

Who can help clear snow and ice from my sidewalk?

Snow Angels matches neighbors with neighbors to shovel the walks of those who are unable to do this on their own. Volunteers impact lives in our community by ensuring our more vulnerable neighbors continue to have access to essential services such as home-delivered meals and medications during the harsh winter months.

Visit Snow Angels Here.

Who do I call to have my street salted and/or plowed?

Please contact the City of Pittsburgh 311 Response Center, for landlines outside of the city you can reach 311 at the 10-digit number, 412-255-2621. If you prefer to email please submit a 311 Request via the Webform.

The 311 Response Center is currently open from 7am - 7pm but receives voice mail messages and emails at any time. You may also Tweet us at @PGH311 or text us at 412-573-9736. TTY number is 412-255-9736.

How soon can I request that my street be salted and/or plowed?

DPW is responsible for over 1200 miles of streets. Depending on the severity or level of the weather event it can take up to 48 hours to treat the streets with salt and/or calcium chloride after a snow/ice event. See Snow Storm Levels page for more information. 

Can I throw snow into the street when shoveling?

It is a violation of city policy to shovel snow into the street. Snow should be piled on lawn areas, close to the curb or in the front and/or rear of your vehicle.

How long do I have to clear my sidewalk?

Per City Code 419.03 all sidewalks must be cleared within twenty-four (24) hours after the snow has stopped. You will receive a warning and could be fined for not properly clearing your sidewalk within the specified time.

What if I am unable to clear my sidewalk because of age or a disability?

Please contact the United Way Helpline at 211 and request information about their shoveling program that matches residents in need with volunteers.

What streets are attended to first?

The city treats Primary Routes, which are main arteries and routes to hospitals and schools. Secondary Routes, which are mainly residential, are done at the same time. Finally, Tertiary Routes, consisting of alleys and streets with minimal traffic are treated last. See Street Classifications for more information

Am I permitted to park on a city street during a snow/ice event?

Yes, unless the weather creates a snow/ice emergency. If we receive greater than ten or more (10+") inches, parking restrictions will be enforced on Emergency Routes.

Pittsburgh Snow Plow Tracker Website

This represents the first version of the Pittsburgh snow plow tracker site. Over time, the City will continue to add features, such as sensors that indicate when the plow and spreader on a truck are actively engaged, and new functionality based on user feedback.

The plow tracker site shows the current location of Public Works vehicles that have moved within the last four hours along with the travel history for all vehicles dedicated to snow and ice control throughout the time frame of the snow event. Current location is shown with a vehicle icon on the screen while travel history is shown by highlighting roads on the map.

Currently, approximately 120 Public Works vehicles used for snow and ice control are enabled with GPS devices. The location of these vehicles and their travel history is tracked and displayed in the snow plow tracker site.

The Pittsburgh plow tracker will be activated only during snow events. At all other times, users will see a placeholder message asking them to check back during the next snow event.

While the site shows vehicle travel history, this does not always equate to active treatment of a street. The City hopes to pilot more advanced GPS sensors that will allow us to pinpoint only vehicle movements related to active treatment efforts. However, in the meantime the map displays all vehicle movements whether related to active treatment efforts or not.

Users may see clusters of vehicles on the plow tracker site. These clusters may appear when vehicles are located at a DPW site during shift changes or when vehicles are queued at a salt dome waiting to be refilled.
