The Beaver County Board of Commissioners has approved a request from the State Parks and Wildlife Service to move the opening of Beaver County’s winter snow collection season from January 1 to March 30.
The request comes after an avalanche forced the closure of Beaver Lake and forced the cancellation of Beaver Creek Road in Beaver County.
The winter snow season is expected to begin in Beaver and Fawn counties on Feb. 1.
The board approved the request from State Parks on Monday.
The request is one of a number of requests from the service to address snow removal needs across the state.
Last winter, the service began removing snow from Beaver County, but the agency said it had a backlog of 1,000 feet of snow and snow removal projects that had to be completed before snow was available.
