No, under Borough Ordinance and State Law it is illegal to shovel or plow snow into a public thoroughfare.

There are several different methods used to maintain the roads for safe travel during the winter. At times, the snowfall may not be heavy enough to require plowing, and salt or will be used. In such instances, the salting process will start on and continue until all roads are completed. Other times, snowfall may be heavy enough that trash pickup may be suspended due to unsafe travel conditions in the alley ways. The following guide explains the snow plan by stages of storm severity and applies to all levels of roads: 


  • 0-3 inches: salt / anti-skid, no plowing required 
  • 3-10 inches: salt / anti-skid, plow, Trash remains until suspended  
  • 10 + inches: salt / anti-skid, plow, trash pickup suspended (trash pickup will resume as soon as possible)

PennDOT handles the state highways located within the Borough. After careful evaluation, Clifton heights determined that it was not in the best interest of our resident to continue the contract with PennDOT. The contract has been terminated, placing the sole responsibility of the opening of state highways back with the state. This will allow the Borough to utilize all its forces on local roads within the Borough to better serve our residents. 

State Highways are listed below:

  • Springfield Road from Westbrook School South to Aldan Borough  
  • Oak Ave from Baltimore Ave to Springfield Road  
  • Oak Ave South from Baltimore Ave to Central Ave (Saint Eugene’s Entrance )  
  • Baltimore Pike from Delmar Drive (Home Depot entrance) to Scottdale Road Lansdowne Border

Once the Borough has declared an end to the Snow Emergency, it will announce that number and on the website. 

Once a Snow Emergency has been declared: 

  1. It will be announced via Red Alert. 
  2. It will be posted on the Borough Website. 
  3. Residents can call Request Line at (610) 623-1000 to inquire about Snow Emergency status.

There may be times when the falling and accumulation of snow and ice upon the streets of Clifton Heights constitutes a significant danger to the safety and wellbeing of residents and/or people traveling within the Borough. At that time, a recommendation will be made by the Borough Manager to declare a “Snow Emergency” for the Borough. The factors that will be taken into consideration for the declaration of a snow emergency are the severity of the storm, ice, forecasted conditions, information received from the Clifton Heights Police Department, Highway Department, and the Governor’s declaration of a State Snow Emergency.
