Snow Removal Plan

Snow removal and ice control management is extremely important to the continuous operation of Morehead State University during the winter season, which can extend from October through April of each year. Proper removal of snow and control of ice is important to the safety and welfare of the students, faculty and staff who utilize the campus and is the explicit task as well as an obligation of the Office of Facilities Management to carry out in an efficient and effective manner. The purpose of this plan is to outline the overall objectives, responsibilities and priorities of the crews responsible for carrying out these operations. 

 

Goals and Priorities

The Office of Facilities Management's goal is to keep the campus clear and safe for all the students, faculty, staff and visitors. 

The general priorities for snow/ice removal are listed as follows: 

  1. Roads, walks, steps, emergency exits and ramps. 
  2. Primary walks, ramps, steps and roads.
  3. Parking lots.
  4. Secondary walks, ramps, steps and roads.

Refer to the Campus Snow/Ice Removal Map for road and sidewalk priorities.

Snow/ Ice Removal Priorities

When heavy snow accumulates during University business hours, snow removal efforts will be focused on select roads, sidewalks and building access points. This is to enable crews to maintain at least one clear path to each building.
