Street Department

Our Mission Statement:

The mission of the Logan City Street Department is to provide professional, timely, and comprehensive support services responsive to the needs of our community for surface transportation and storm water management and control.


Our Functions:

The function of the Street Department is to maintain the existing infrastructure within the City of Logan in order to provide a safe, convenient, and clean environment for City of Logan citizens and visitors.


Street Maintenance

Street maintenance includes patching of existing roadways. We also maintain the shoulders of the roads and mow them when needed. Some of the biggest maintenance projects include Chip and Seal, which takes place each July, and Snow Removal. We also sweep all streets.


Concrete Maintenance

We maintain all sidewalks and curb & gutter along city streets, as well as install new sidewalk and curb & gutter where needed.


Sign Maintenance

We maintain all street signs along city streets. This includes stop signs, yield signs, school zone signs, street name signs, and more.


striping Paint Maintenance

We maintain all pavement markings on city streets and paint markings on new roads. This includes:

  • center lines
  • shoulder lines
  • stop bars
  • crosswalks
  • school crossings
  • directional arrows
  • railroad crossings
  • parking stalls
  • handicap stalls
  • red curbs

Waterway Maintenance

We install new culverts and storm drains and maintain the existing culverts and storm drains. We clean gutters and storm drains on a regular basis to prevent debris from clogging the waterways. This is done using street sweepers and vacuum trucks. We also clean rivers, ditches, and irrigation canals to keep water flowing.


Pit Operations

The City of Logan owns and operates an open-face gravel pit which allows us to obtain materials for our road projects at a cheaper price.

The 2015 City of Logan Chip & Seal program will run from June 29th through July 31st.


June 29th through July 13th the streets will be chipped
July 23th through July 31st we will fog seal the streets


The tentative schedule is listed below.

Please be aware that this schedule is subject to change without notice.



  • Approximately 2 or 3 days before chipping and again before sealing, we will place No Parking barricades along the shoulders of the road. Once the work begins, the street will be closed.
  • Vehicles left parked on the roadway when we are ready to begin chipping, as well as when we return to fog seal, will be removed and/or impounded at the owner’s expense.
  • Chipping and sealing each will take approximately 2 hours. You will be able to get in and out your driveway or business access during that time; however there might be a slight delay.
  • During the two weeks between laying chips and fog sealing City crews will be cleaning the streets in preparation for fog sealing.
  • We ask that you make sure your sprinklers do not water any part of the street surface for 4 hours after the road is chipped and again when sealed.
  • Once the road has been chipped, please do not turn sharply or spin your tires on the new road surface.

Thank you in advance for your patience, Logan City Public Works Street Division


Please call 716-9642 with any questions.

SPRING CLEANUP

Beginning Monday, April 13, 2015 the Logan City Public Works Department will be working to help all Logan residents clean up their yards in this one-time effort.


During Spring Cleanup residents can put green waste on the parkstrip in front of their homes and the Public Works Department will pick it up. Green waste is material such as lawn clippings, leaves, and branches (basically anything that grows in your yard). Material cannot be longer than 6 feet or bigger than 12 inches in diameter, and cannot total more than 12 cubic yards. Please, no large stumps.


To help our crews pick up the material, please do not place it by fixtures like fire hydrants, water meters, mailboxes or trees. Please do not put any green waste in the gutter or in the street. We will not accept any debris or junk, only green waste. If there is garbage in the green waste we will not pick up any of it.


Please be aware that Spring Cleanup is a one-time pickup. All green waste should be out by Monday, April 13th.


Materials not accepted or put out after the pickup will be the responsibility of the homeowner.



***ALL SPRING CLEANUP MATERIAL SHOULD BE OUT BY MONDAY, APRIL 13th!***



LEAF CLEANUP

The Street Division, under the direction of the Public Works Department, is charged with the responsibility of maintaining the streets and storm water systems throughout the City. The purpose of the leaf cleanup program is to remove leaves from the roadways and gutters so that they do not impede the flow of storm water, causing flooding or property damage. Therefore, major water ways and storm sewers are given first priority and receive as much attention as needed. It is necessary to clean some areas multiple times while some areas are only cleaned once. IN ORDER TO ACCOMPLISH OUR PURPOSE WE ARE UNABLE TO SET A SCHEDULE.


Leaf cleanup typically begins around the first of October and continues until approximately the Thanksgiving Holiday, or as long as weather permits.


Vacuum trucks and sweepers are used in this process.


How it works:


The Street Division will vacuum up loose leaves that have been raked into a pile or "windrow" on the park-strip along the edge of the gutter. Do not rake leaves or other debris into the gutter, canals, or the road. This blocks culverts and bridges during storm events that cause flooding. It is against city ordinance to block or restrict waterways.


Bags are best!


Whenever possible, please bag your leaves. Bagged leaves are easier to manage if a windstorm hits or we receive precipitation before we are able to complete leaf cleanup.


If you live in a cul-de-sac, please bag your leaves. Our vacuum trucks are too big to maneuver in cul-de-sacs.


Bagged leaves are picked up once all the loose leaves have been picked up and the gutters are clean. This is usually done at the end of November or the first part of December.


The Street Division asks for your cooperation in the following ways:

  • Please do not include sticks or branches, grass clippings, garden waste, or flower bed mulching with leaves. They plug the vacuum tubes and damage the equipment.
  • Park off the street as much as possible. Vehicles prohibit our equipment from reaching the leaves.
  • Please do not rake leaves around the base of trees, telephone poles, fire hydrants, or power boxes in the park strip. The vacuum equipment is unable to pick up leaves around such fixtures.
  • Please do not rake leaves to the edge of the roadway.
  • If you have a curbside green waste container, it may be used to dispose of leaves. The week of November 18, 2013 will be the last curbside pickup of green waste containers. Please do not put leaves in your blue recycling can. Contact the Environmental Department for more information about what you can and cannot put in your green waste container and blue recycling can.

Leaves and other green waste are always accepted at the Landfill free of charge!


If you have any questions, call us at (435) 716-9642

We all enjoy residing in beautiful Cache Valley, and snow is simply a reality of living here. The goal of the Street Department is to quickly and efficiently provide safe and clear roadways as soon as possible after a snow storm. This page provides valuable information about our snow removal program.


Priorities

All the city streets have been categorized according to priority. Priority is based upon the volume of traffic and the number of homes and businesses serviced by that road. The highest priority is given to arterial roads, which include routes to schools, hospitals, medical facilities, USU campus, downtown areas, hills, and main roads going to residential areas. Collector roads are the next priority and are mainly residential, and local roads, including cul-de-sacs and parking lots, are the next priority. Please keep in mind that the duration and intensity of a storm are big factors. During major storms only the highest priority roads will be maintained until the storm subsides and crews are able to move onto secondary roads. Here is the complete list of plowing priorities.


Here is a link to a Map of Plow Routes.


Roads that we do not maintain

We do not plow private roads that are owned by the State of Utah. To find out if your road is private, check the private roads list.

State owned roads maintained by UDOT include:

  • 200 North west of Main Street
  • 400 North east of Main Street
  • Main Street
  • 1000 West
  • 2500 North

To contact UDOT call:
  • (435) 752-5377
  • (435) 757-4347

To contact the Cache County Road Department call:
  • (435) 716-8340
  • (435) 755-1560

You can also call Dispatch for any road emergency at (435) 753-7555.


Cul-de-sacs

There are 210 cul-de-sacs in Logan and more are added every year. Please understand that the low amount of traffic in cul-de-sacs means that they are lower priority. Depending on the intensity and duration of the storm, we start on cul-de-sacs once the arterial roads are cleared and we've moved onto collector roads. Cul-de-sacs have limited space so they are plowed with our smaller equipment, such as backhoes and pickup trucks. Limited space also means that if there are cars parked on the street, the cul-de-sac might not be plowed because our equipment cannot maneuver around the cars. Also, there is limited space to pile snow, so it will end up everyone's park strip. Some will get more than others.


Our crews, equipment, and materials

The Street Division has 19 full-time employees, 11 plows with sanders, 3 pickup trucks, 2 backhoes, a motor grader, a loader, a Vac truck, and a heavy equipment snow blower dedicated to snow removal. The plows spread a mixture of red and white salt from the rear of the truck. We no longer use sand in this mixture due to EPA mandated storm water regulations. We also apply a liquid called magnesium chloride ("mag") and salt brine to heavily traveled roads and hills before a storm is expected. The mag prevents snow from accumulating and bonding on the road's surface. If you see our crew spraying what looks like water on the road, it's mag or salt brine. Drive carefully because it can be slippery at first.


Snow Plow

Be aware of our equipment

A loaded snow plow weighs as much as 10 small cars. They need more room to stop, especially during storms. Even if you have the right of way, the plow might not be able to stop if you pull out in front of them. Please wait a few more seconds and let the plow go by first before pulling out (you'll have a nice plowed surface to drive on, too). The plows spread salt out the back, so be sure to allow at least 50 feet between you and the plow so that your vehicle is not damaged by flying material, nor does it impede the application of the salt. Also, do not follow a plow uphill because they can slide back down the hill. Wait until you see it reach the top, then proceed. Do not allow children to play near the street while plows are out. Do not build snow forts near the street because a snow plow can cause the fort to collapse.


Vehicles and garbage cans in the road

Cars and garbage cans are the #1 obstacle for snow plow operators. It is against Logan City ordinance 10.52.170 to park a vehicle on any street or city owned parking lot between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. from November 15 to February 28. This ordinance also states that no vehicles or trailers shall be parked on the street for more than 21 hours at a time, unless permitted. Please note that it is the local resident’s responsibility to inform out of town guests about parking regulations. If you require an alternative to parking, contact the Parking Authority at (435) 750-0255. Also, please do not put your garbage and recycling cans out until the morning of your collection day, and remove them from the street that evening. Keeping the road clear of vehicles and garbage cans will help our operators clear the entire roadway, which is crucial in preventing snow and ice buildup.


Permits

We will not be responsible for snow pushed around cars left on the street, even if the owner has a permit to park on the street. We will not return to clean around cars, so permit owners are responsible for digging out cars after the plow has gone by.


Sidewalks

As a courtesy to your neighbors and others, please keep the sidewalk in front of your home or business free of snow and ice. Logan City ordinance 12.08.080 requires all owners and occupants of Logan City to maintain public sidewalks and bus stops adjacent to their property in a safe condition for travel, requiring prompt removal of snow, ice, sleet and other obstructions as necessary.


Shovel the public sidewalk on all sides of your property, the full width of the sidewalk down to the bare pavement.


If you have a corner property, then clear curb cuts at the corners (radius corners) and crosswlks to the street gutter.


Pile snow into your yard or park strip. It is against Logan City ordinance to shovel snow into streets.


Are there neighbors on your street who are elderly, disabled, or may have a hard time shoveling for any reason? Work with your neighbors to ensure your entire block is safe and accessible.


Arrange for someone to shovel while you are on vacation.


Do not throw snow back into the road

It is against Logan City ordinance 12.04.270 to throw or push snow into the street with a snowblower, 4wheeler, shovel, or any other means. This creates dangerous bumps in the road that can turn into ice, causing accidents and property damage for citizens and snow plow operators. It is also against the law to throw things at snow plows.


Note to contractors

Contractors pushing parking lots for apartment buildings, schools, churches, businesses, etc., need to be aware that the snow from that area must stay on that property. Do not push the snow out into the road or onto someone else’s property. Contractors must have a business license.


Resources

You can call us at (435) 716-9642 or come to our office at 950 West 600 North. You can also call System Operations Control Center (SOCC) at (435) 716-9090 24 hours a day.


The bottom line

The bottom line is that we do the best job we can to provide clear and safe driving conditions for citizens. Every storm is different, but our goal for each one is to provide timely and effective service. With your cooperation, we can make this winter's snow removal a success.

What Can I Do?

The Street Department relies on the cooperation of Logan citizens to make our work a success. Below you will find a list of things that you can do to help keep Logan streets both beautiful and functional.


  • Keep gutters free of debris. Periodically clean the gutter in front of your house. This not only increases the beauty of your street, but the waste accumulates and plugs storm drains which causes flooding.

  • It is residents' responsibility to keep their drive bridge over the gutter clear of debris so water can flow freely through the gutter. Keeping the gutter clear of debris will prevent your drive bridge from getting plugged.

  • Keep hazardous liquids like motor oil out of the gutters. It flows into the storm water, which costs time and money to clean, and eventually this is the drinking water that flows from the tap in your home. For more information visit Storm Water. To report hazardous material in the storm water system call (435) 716-9168.

  • During winter months:
    • Please do not park your vehicle on the street so that snowplows are able to plow your street. It is against Logan City ordinance 10.52.170 to park a vehicle on any street or city owned parking lot between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. from November 15 through the last day of February.
    • Please do not put your garbage and recycling cans out until the morning of your collection day, and remove them from the street that evening. Keeping the road clear of vehicles and garbage cans will help our operators clear the entire roadway, which is crucial in preventing snow and ice buildup.
    • Be Nice, clear the snow and ice!
      • All owners and occupant of Logan City are required to maintain public sidewalks and bus stops adjacent to their respective lots in a safe condition for travel, requiring prompt removal of snow, ice, sleet, and other obstructions as necessary.
      • Shovel the public sidewalk on all sides of your property, the full width of the sidewalk down to the bare pavement.
      • If you have a corner property, clear curb cuts at the corners (radius corners) and crosswalks to the street gutter.
      • Pile snow into your yard and park strip. It’s against Logan City ordinance to shovel snow into streets.
      • Are there neighbors on your street who are elderly, disabled, or may have a hard time shoveling for any reason? Work with your neighbors to ensure your entire block is safe and accessible.
      • Arrange for someone to shovel while you are on vacation.
      • For information about Neighborhood Improvement's Code Enforcement or to report treacherous sidewalk call (435) 716-9025 or visit Community Development.

  • During Fall Leaf Cleanup and Spring Yard Waste Cleanup, please do not park on the street so that we are able to see the waste and it is accessible for our equipment to pickup.
  • During Chip and Seal, please do not park on your street for a 48-hour period while we are working there. Also, please make sure your sprinklers do not water any part of the street during that 48-hour period. Please do not turn sharply or spin your tires on the new road surface.
  • Notify Charon Sprague at (435) 716-9642 if you notice damaged or missing street signs, potholes in the road, hazardous sidewalk, or any other problems.
