Snow Clearing Priority Maps

 

Snow Clearing Process and Schedule

Once the highways, arterial, collector, and central business district roadways have been attended to, crews will commence work in the residential districts when warranted. If it begins to snow again before the residential streets are complete, crews will revert back to clearing the highways, arterial, collector, and central business district streets before proceeding where they left off in the residential areas. 

Highways
Completed within 6-8 hours of the end of snowfall.

Arterial Roads
Completed within 10-14 hours of the end of snowfall.

Collector/Main Streets
Completed within 20-30 hours of the end of snowfall.

Industrial/Central Business District
Managed after third priority, and as needed.

Residential Streets
Snow clearing begins when compacted snow is 75 mm (2.95 inches) thick.

Lanes
As required to maintain traffic and emergency vehicle movement.

 

Snowplow Safety

Safety is the City's #1 Priority

  • Never pass a snowplow on the right hand side unless the operator stops, or slows down, and signals you to pass.
  • Be careful and keep a safe distance (30 metres) from any snowplow, grader or truck and loader during snow removal.
  • Observe the signs posted or follow the directions of the crew.
