New Britain Public Works is charged with the responsibility of responding to winter snow and icing events on the over 170 miles of City streets with the goal of providing cost effective snow and ice clearing operations that will keep the city’s roadways passable during storm events, minimize the hazards caused by slippery road conditions, and help restore safe traveling conditions throughout the City as soon as possible after the end of each storm.
