Herriman Neighbors Want Cul-De-Sac Plowed More Often

Jan 2, 2020, 9:55 PM | Updated: Jan 3, 2020, 12:55 am

HERRIMAN, Utah – Neighbors in a cul-de-sac with sloppy, snow and slush-covered roads questioned why their street hadn’t been plowed more frequently, considering they’ve regularly had to assist delivery trucks that gut stuck at the bottom after storms.

Pam Manwill said Rosescape Circle has almost always been a mess over the past 10 years.

“Every year we do the same thing,” Manwill said. “(The trucks) are so (back) heavy they can’t make it back up the hill.”

Video captured Thursday showed one neighbor using his own truck to help tow a delivery van back up the street.

Manwill, flanked by several other neighbors in her cul-de-sac, said that kind of scene plays out practically every time the snow falls.

After a storm on November 30, Manwill said three delivery vehicles got stuck.

“They just about hit the fire hydrant, and it’s like, ‘Okay, I’m done,’” she said.

Resident Teppi Sessions said she believed the cul-de-sac only ends up getting plowed a couple times per winter.

“There’s been several times I’ve had to take my son to work—he works in Draper—because his car wouldn’t go up the road even with snow tires,” Sessions said.

Herriman City spokesperson Tami Moody said major roads, secondary roads, collectors and arterial roads are always prioritized ahead of cul-de-sacs.

“The city has over 13,000 snowplow miles, and that involves 265 cul-de-sacs,” Moody said. “Because they take longer and are not major travel lanes, they usually are one of the last roads done.”

Moody said plowing often takes place up to days after a winter storm, but she said all roads “should get done.”

“Obviously, our snow plow drivers are human and we have several different staff working it in different shifts, so if a road is missed, all they have to do is call in and we’ll make sure that we send somebody out to get that road taken care of,” Moody said.

Moody said if there is a reason a cul-de-sac should be prioritized after a storm, residents should contact the city, and workers will see if those streets can be prioritized after the main roads are sufficiently cleared.

Manwill acknowledged her cul-de-sac was plowed once Thursday following her complaint, but she said it shouldn’t happen that way.

“If I pay my taxes, I expect services,” Manwill said. “They treat every other road around here but they don’t treat the circle. Come down and treat the circle. It’ll be helpful to us.”
