City of Missoula Sets Goal to Plow Every Street

Posted: Updated:

A new snow storm has its sights set on the Missoula Valley, but Street Superintendent Brian Hensel hopes to lessen the blow by trying to plow every residential street in Missoula by Thursday evening.

"We are aiming at getting to every street before the Thursday night snowstorm," Hensel said.

"We want to be in the best position possible from the start."

Hensel set the ambitious goal in consultation with Mayor John Engen and Chief Administrative Officer Bruce Bender.

To accomplish it, all crews are working overtime and plowed all of the priority streets yesterday.

Of the City's 305 miles of streets, 174 miles are designated Priority 1, 2 or 3 and crews are tackling the remaining 131 miles today.

Hensel said crews are attempting to minimize the creation of berms at residential driveways by plowing only the driving lanes where possible.

Residents whose streets have not been plowed should call the Street Maintenance Division at 552-6360.
