Why is snow piled on my corner?

Snow that accumulates across side roads and street corners needs to be pushed onto the corner to allow cars to turn. The snow is pushed back in the direction the truck is traveling so some corners may get more snow than others. 

Snow piled at a street corner is of particular concern where there are school bus stops. If the snow accumulates at a bus stop, children may have to move up the street to board the bus. Please instruct children not to climb on the piles that have accumulated. 

If a snow pile on a particular corner becomes a sight distance problem, please call the Highway Department at 847-244-1101, ext. *301.
