Now that this year’s first snowstorm is in the books, it’s time for you to rate how the town’s plows handled the 10 inches of snow that fell on Tewksbury.

I work in Tewksbury so my employer let us leave at 2ish. I must say North St., Livingston St., East St. and Shawsheen were great. I could see the pavement and dirt on the road.

Thank you front loader plow driver. Erin ave is always forgotten. Not this year. You even pushed back the banks in our driveways.

I can't speak for how the rest of the town was plowed but I can tell you for the past 17 years the town has continued it's tradition of not plowing the odd numbered side of John E. Smith Drive. This means I have to shovel 7-10 feet of street in front of my driveway every snowstorm so that my husband, who works 3rd shift, can get into the driveway at 8am.

same thing happens here...they leave about 10 feet to my driveway where the 'curb' and my mailbox is...

I wonder if I should have answered this before I had to go outside and shovel the 10+ feet of street they left unplowed in front of my house. I can put property markers along my property line and STILL they don't plow the entire road. Im seriously thinking about generating a bill for my time spent shoveling the town roads. Every year, every storm I face this problem, it shouldn't be this way. I have even received notification from the post office because of the amount of snow the town is leaving unplowed on the roadway in front of my mailbox. Get your act together Tewksbury!!

A solid 3 on a 1-10 scale (10 being great)! As with most "snow events" of more than 3". My road was plowed to within about 4 feet of my mailbox, the road was a sheet of ice because they left 1/2 inch of packed snow. In front of the Trahan at 10:30 AM looked like it was not touched by plow. My car bottomed out.

Pretty crappy. Even Whipple didn't look like it had been plowed recently at 5:30pm-ish, and it's not exactly what I'd call a side road. Billerica was somewhat better.

I have to agree. We have probably about 1/2 in of snow on the road which is packed down and very slippery. Brown/Whipple were the same. The last storm the plow took out my mailbox. I've lived here 22yrs and it has always been the same.

We live on Mississippi and it wasn't plowed the storms before and this time it was plowed wide enough for two cars to go down. Thankfully! South street has finally been plowed down to pavement but only certain parts, but it was plowed to the curb on either side. For my experience and my husband who works before 5am, it was good job. I would give them a 7. ( out of 10) I am wondering if the extremely temps make it difficult to get pavement.

Trull rd was forgotten. Terrible

Temple St./ Bay State Rd plowed out totally. Great job. Thanks.
