Delco Alert - December 16, 2020

Good afternoon. This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some notifications about the snow storm.

The latest weather forecast is predicting snow to begin in Upper Darby after 2pm. Our Public Works crews have been brining our snow emergency routes, hills, curves, and “hot spots”. Snow plans rely heavily on the cooperation of residents. Please help our Public Works, Police, and Fire Departments: Do not park at street corners, in fire lanes or in front of fire hydrants. We need to keep these areas open for our snow plows and public safety vehicles. Please utilize off-street parking if available.

Snow plowing will begin after snow begins to accumulate. Our Public Works department is prepared with plows and salt and is ready to go. Please stay off the road ways and avoid all non-essential travel during the snowstorm so that our salt trucks, snow plows, and first responders can move freely and keep everyone safe. There are 125 miles of roads in Upper Darby Township. Plowing is handled in a specific order in each zone. We will have plenty of crews out this afternoon, evening, and overnight. State Highways are handled by PennDOT. We appreciate your patience as we work to address the effects of this winter storm.

As of noon today, December 16th,, trash and recycling are being collected as regularly scheduled..There are no changes to the trash and recycling schedule at this time.

Please check our Facebook posts which are also available at for regular updates on snow removal, trash, and recycling.

If you have concerns about the expected storm, please call the Mayor’s Request Line at 610.734.7625. Always call 911 in an emergency.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer wishing you a safe and healthy afternoon.
