Road Operations

Snow Plow at WorkGresham crews anti-ice, de-ice, plow or sand streets – or a combination of techniques – depending on conditions. The City’s winter response
route consists of three categories:

  • Priority 1: hospital and emergency routes, arterial streets, and bridges
  • Priority 2: through and collector streets and steep grades
  • Priority 3: residential streets, cul-de-sacs, and dead ends

Use the City’s interactive plow map to see if your street is a primary, secondary or neighborhood street. If inclement weather persists, crews may focus on the Priority 1 and Priority 2 streets until weather improves.
