Snow Removal

A couple walking on a snowy trailThe City of Fort Wayne does its best to remove snow from most major trail sections within the city limits. Snow will only be removed if there has been more than 3 inches of snow and is usually cleared within about a week. Public Works does its best to keep us updated on the progress of snow removable and we will pass that information when we have it.  The Fort Wayne Parks Department does the plowing in the parks. The County will see less plowing as the resources and equipment are not as readily available.
