The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds the public that it is unlawful to deposit snow on or next to a public highway or street.



Improperly placing snow on or near a public road creates hazards including drainage problems, drifting, sight obstruction and unsafe access.



Minnesota law and many local ordinances prohibit the plowing, blowing, shoveling or otherwise placing of snow on to public roads. This includes the ditch and right of way area along roads.



Violations are considered misdemeanors, but civil penalties also apply. If the placement of snow creates a hazard, such as a slippery area, frozen rut or bump that contributes to a motor vehicle or pedestrian crash the civil liberty can extend to both the property owner and the person who placed the snow.



MnDOT maintenance crews plow and maintain approximately 12,000 miles of state highways and interstates in Minnesota. Safety is MnDOT’s number one priority. Snowplow drivers and motorists have to work together to make travel safer and avoid crashes during winter weather events.



For updated statewide road conditions call 5-1-1 or visit www.511mn.org.
