The City of Cedar Hills maintains approximately 30 miles of roads, public trails, and government building parking lots. These areas are maintained for road repairs and snow removal by the Public Works Department. Service is provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week. After-hours service is limited, unless a snow emergency is declared. The City staff is committed to provide safe conditions for City residents.
Road Surface Maintenance
Pavement maintenance is a vital process in the City’s street management program. The City evaluates each road every three years. The evaluation identifies road surface deficiencies and establishes the residual surface life (RSL). The City has a policy to maintain streets at an average RSL of 12 years, according to GASB 34 requirements. The evaluation and RSL components define the type and timing of street improvements, including surface rejuvenation, patching, and replacement. Road Surface Maintenance More Information.
Fallen Rocks on Canyon Road
The city has addressed several calls regarding rocks and gravel on Canyon Road, SR-146, at the mouth of American Fork Canyon. The road, shoulder, right of way, and slope (from which the rocks fall) are owned and maintained by Utah County. It is the responsibility of the County to clear the road. If you see an issue, please call the Utah County Public Works Deparpartment, or you may call the Cedar Hills city office.
Street Cut Permit
Anyone planning to cut into the road must complete a Street Cut Permit and have it approved and signed by the City Engineer prior to commencing work. Download a Street Cut and/or Excavation Permit.
Street Parking Restrictions (see City Code 5-2-5: Parking Regulations)
It is unlawful for any person to park or allow to remain parked any vehicle upon streets for more than 48 hours. Also, so as to provide access to snow plows for snow removal, it is unlawful for any person to park or allow to remain parked any vehicle upon streets from November 1 to the following March 31 upon said streets when:
- Snow is falling or there is a visible amount of snow on the street;
- The street has not been plowed since the snow fell;
- During snow/ice removal.
Exceptions to these requirements include the following:
- The temporary parking of vehicles for a reasonably short period of time, not to exceed twelve (12) hours, to accommodate loading or unloading or the performance of service;
- Construction, contracting or earth-moving equipment that is otherwise classified as commercial vehicles may be temporarily parked on streets, provided the vehicles are actively being used for construction activities on the specific property where the vehicles are being parked;
- Emergency vehicles.
The City’s policy regarding snowplowing is that streets will be cleared according to priority beginning when the street has accumulated a minimum of two inches of snow and continuing until driving conditions are considered adequately safe. Streets receive a higher priority according to volume of traffic, location near schools or public buildings, and steepness of grade, etc. Typically, low-volume streets and cul-de-sacs remain the last to be plowed.
