When it snows, Eden Prairie maintenance crews clear 233 miles of City streets, in addition to arterial sidewalks and trails – county and state crews plow the highways. Residents can help the snow removal efforts by shoveling around hydrants and mailboxes and by clearing the sidewalks in front of their homes - remember, it is illegal to place snow on a public roadway.
A snow emergency may be issued when snow accumulations reach 2 inches or more. Notification is made through news media, the City website, City Facebook page and City News. All vehicles must be removed from City streets until the entire width of the roadway has been cleared.
Eden Prairie's recreational trails are maintained throughout the winter months for the public to enjoy; however, trails are not treated with sand and salt. Please use caution, wear appropriate footwear and remember that trail conditions are often inconsistent due to sun exposure, temperatures and usage.
