Snow Removal

Haverford Township’s Public Works Department is responsible for clearing approximately 165 miles of roads during snow storms. The process is time-consuming and expensive. Consequently, the Township utilizes brine and other techniques to pre-treat its roads, and works to clear roads of snow and ice as quickly as possible.
