A Friendly Reminder about Street Parking during Snow Plowing Season

Elizabeth Township and the Public Works Department would like to put out a friendly reminder to be sure to utilize off-street parking if it is available to you during the following winter months. This allows the Public Works Department to plow snow off of the streets to the best of their ability to make driving conditions as clear as possible for the residents of Elizabeth Township!

Additionally, if you are finding that a road is being neglected when it comes to being cleared of snow & salting, please feel free to contact us here at the Municipal Building at (412) 751-2880. We can address your concern and direct you to the proper facility if the road you are referring to is not a Township road and is maintained by Allegheny County or PennDOT.

We thank you in advance for you patience and your cooperation.
