The mission of the American Fork City Street Department is to provide the best service possible to the residents of American Fork. We will continually work to improve the quality of life for our residents by maintaining clean, safe, hazard-free roadways, while striving to provide the highest level of service and responsiveness to citizen requests and concerns.
American Fork City is charged with maintaining over 120 miles of road within our City. The duties of maintaining the roadways are varied and differ depending on the season.

American Fork City Snow Removal Policy
American Fork City strives to provide timely, efficient and cost effective snow and ice removal on its roadways. Each storm or weather event produces different variables which affect how we respond with our snow removal equipment. Snow Removal Ordinance (PDF)
Summing it up:
In accordance with City ordinance, no parking is permitted on City streets from Nov.1st to Mar 31st when a measurable amount of snow has fallen and the street has not been plowed since the snow fell. City ordinance (PDF)
Street plowing priority is based on the roads classification and usage intensity. Priority map
City ordinance prohibits snow or ice removed from private property from being deposited in the public right-of-way. Snow Removal Ordinance (PDF)
Salt is only used at intersections, on hills, in school zones or limited areas where deemed necessary.
In subdivisions and cul-de-sacs, our plows focus on keeping a travel lane in each direction passable.
It is not the policy of American Fork City to maintain bare pavement on City streets.
Each year, our Public Works Department assesses the City’s paved roads. The roads are categorized by conditions based on technical evaluations including Remaining Surface Life (RSL) and Pavement Condition Index (PCI). Annually, roads are prioritized and allocated based on RSL, PCI, traffic counts, safety, benefit and other factors. Construction costs will also impact prioritization.
Updated details for current road repair projects are found on the Capital Projects page here.
American Fork City has been very successful at getting CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) funding to augment city funding for replacing aging infrastructure. The map below shows projects that AF has completed and which are currently in progress.
