Snow Removal Priorities and Snow Route Map
Click here to view a map showing the accessible priority snow route through campus that was jointly designed by Facilities Management and Disability Resource Center. When snow events occur more rapidly than our resources can keep up with, we retreat to working on this route specifically, and then work on higher priorities as time permits. Also linked is a prioritized listing of parking lots, hills, and driveways that are cleared by WIU Landscape Maintenance staff. Western Avenue, Adams Street, and University Drive are owned and maintained by the City of Macomb.
How the campus community can assist us the most is to be aware of the snow removal priorities listed above. Please post this information and/or distribute to all building occupants. Also, specific problem occurrences should be reported to Landscape Maintenance, Plant Work Order Room, or after working hours to our Night Superintendent or OPS.
If you have questions or concerns please contact Tara Beal, Superintendent of Landscape Maintenance at 309-298-1834 ext 255 or TS-Beal@wiu.edu
