This routing priority may be changed/deviated from based upon the judgment of The Snow Plow Operator, or upon specific direction by the Town Board. However, it has been designed to clear the roads serving the most township residences & priority school bus routes in the most efficient manner. This route measures approximately 70 miles, and should take approximately 6 hours to complete, depending upon conditions. Any changes to this routing should be for a very good reason.
