Snow Removal

Snow Removal
Posted on 12/09/2018
The Village of Orland Park Public Works Department has been gearing up for the upcoming season and is prepared to tackle whatever Mother Nature sends our way.

When a storm begins, day or night, Public Works crews are promptly mobilized and dispatched. The type of storm, anticipated accumulation, expected duration and other variables such as wind, drifting and temperature dictates how our specific snow plowing operations will progress.

The snow removal process includes a prioritized implementation schedule in order to ensure public safety. It is imperative to clear main roads first to provide mobility and access for police, fire and ambulatory activity. All village-owned streets will be plowed with main streets cleared first, followed by side-streets, and finally cul-de-sacs and dead ends.

When heavy snowfall demands additional resources, the village will dispatch contractors to assist with clearing snow from elbows, courts and cul-de-sacs.

Not all roads within Orland Park are maintained by the village. Some State, County and privately maintained roads and properties are maintained by other agencies.

Please use the following phone numbers to find out about State and Cook County roads:
• State Roads, 847-705-4161
• Cook County Roads, 708-448-8006

To clear our roads as quickly as possible and keep them safe for travel, we need the cooperation of all our residents. Those with questions regarding snow removal can contact the Public Works Department at 708-403-6350.
