The Department of Transportation issued a reminder that plowing snow from private property into local roads, ditches, and right of ways is illegal.
DOT reminds residents that as the snowfall continues this winter remember it is a violation of state law to plow excess snow from your driveway and yard across state maintained roadways.
According to the Kenai Peninsula Borough, this creates an obstruction hazard and sight problems for the traveling public and snow removal equipment.
They say plowing snow into the right of way creates significant additional costs and delays to road crews who have to move the snow back – a cost which is eventually transferred to the taxpayer.
Along with the reminder about plowing, the Borough asks parents to keep children out of snow piles and berms along roadways.
