Winter Weather

Getting Ready for Winter


The City of Altoona Public Works Department takes great pride in our City streets throughout the year with an emphasis in this section on winter services.  Preparation for the winter season begins well in advance of winter weather.

The overall goal of the City's plan is to provide timely clearing of City streets, while minimizing hazards and restoring travel conditions throughout the City as soon as possible after each winter storm event.
