Where do cities take all the snow off of the roads?

    depends on the city. Some on a vacant lot owned by the city, some into a river or lake.

    one year when Boston had a lot of snow, the pile of accumulated snow didn't melt until late July.

    In cities, it's mostly piled up along the side of the road, making it very difficult for pedestrians to cross the street. Elsewhere, it is frequently dropped into bodies of water, raising the salinity marginally.
