How is it decided which streets get plowed first?

Main streets (also known as “arterial streets”) are plowed first as they move the most traffic.  In the event of a blizzard or a snow so large that crews cannot keep up, they will fall back and only plow the main roads until the snow ends.  Secondary roads, like a residential street with relatively low traffic, will be plowed as part of the normal operation, but will be secondary to arterial streets.
