Who plows your road? Here’s who is responsible for clearing each Allegheny Co. street

ALLEGHENY CO., Pa. — Every time it snows in the Pittsburgh area, people want their neighborhoods and nearby streets cleared -- especially when there are multiple inches on the ground and frigid temperatures.

But when your roads haven’t been touched by snow plows, how do you know who to call?

If you live in Allegheny County, there’s a map for that.

Allegheny County created an interactive map called “Who Plows My Road” that tells you who is responsible for plowing and salting any specific road in the area.

It breaks it down between four categories: state, county, municipal and private.

The only streets that aren’t a public entity’s responsibility are those listed as “private” on the map.
