The Public Works Operations Manual defines street maintenance activities, and the street sign, sidewalk and trail inspection, street sweeping and winter maintenance policies. It outlines snow and ice control objectives and procedures as established by the City of Prior Lake and information on priority snow routes and proper mailbox placement to protect it from the snow plows (see Winter Operations and Show Control below).

Maintenance and construction workers are vulnerable when working on streets. Please use care and patience when maneuvering around or through construction zones. For questions regarding scheduled projects, contact Public Works at (952) 447-9800 or visit the Street and Utility Projects page.
