Snow and Ice MaintenanceCounty crews remove snow and ice from designated County and Town highways through plowing, salting, and sanding. The objective of Snow and Ice Maintenance is to provide the traveling public with the ability to travel on highways at reasonable and prudent speeds within the limitations imposed by the extremes of weather, and within the resources of the Highway Department.
Salt and/or abrasives will be applied on roadways during inclement weather, which will cause, or has caused, slippery conditions. Salt will be applied in accordance with the County Policy, "salt use for snow and ice control". Abrasives may also be applied to improve vehicular control.
The Towns of Lansing, Groton, Dryden, Caroline, Danby, Ithaca, and Ulysses
all assist in Snow and Ice Maintenance on County Roads. If you have
questions or concerns about the Snow and Ice Maintenance on a County Road,
please call 274-0300 for information, or the Town Highway Department where
