Snow Removal

The City of Dardenne Prairie currently contracts with St. Charles County Highway Department for street maintenance. If you have any issues with snowy weather clean up, please call them at 636-949-7305

The County has snow removal responsibilities on approximately 706 miles of streets and roadways, ranging from multi-lane arterials to subdivision cul-de-sacs. During a typical winter storm, the County Highway Department operates two twelve-hour shifts, utilizing 32 trucks and 45 employees each shift. Work is divided between 22 designated “snow routes”, with each route being assigned a driver for each 12 hour shift. It is the goal of the department to have each route salted or plowed twice each 24 hour period, but the actual progress is directly related to the intensity and type of storm. Extremely heavy snow, freezing rain, or severely cold temperatures impacts the time it takes for their drivers to get through the various routes.

The County also has a website for reporting road maintenance requests: http://highway.sccmo.org/highway/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=47&Itemid=100156  

Their contact information is:
