SNOW PLOW POLICY
The Trinity County Road Department has developed the following snow plow policy and snow plow priority maps. These maps may change due to changes in staffing and / or scheduled school bus routes. If you have any questions, comments or correction recommendations, please call Andy Pence, Senior Engineer at 530-623-1365 ext. 3414, or send an email to: TCDOT.
NOTE: The following maps have four different priority classifications for county roads.
Priority 1 Roads: Are Major Arterials and will be the highest priority roads for the county road personnel to keep open during a large storm event.
Priority 2 Roads: Are also high priority roads, many of which are school bus routes and emergency services locations, that road personnel will be focusing on during storm events.
Priority 3 Roads: May be plowed during storm events, as time permits, but overtime will not be authorized to plow these roads. Priority 3 roads will not be plowed weekends or holidays, and may not be plowed until priority 1 and 2 roads are cleared.
Priority 4 Roads: Are "Not Winter Maintained," and may not be plowed at all. Some of the "Not Winter Maintained" roads may be opened when all other plowing and storm cleanup has been completed.
