Road Maintenance Updates - Friday January 17

Thank you for your ongoing patience as crews continue to work on maintaining 500+ km of roads during this ongoing snow and ice event:

  • Crews continue to follow the snow and ice control policy on priority route cleaning, and are endeavoring to work down through the priority route roadways.
  • Due to repeated snowfalls, crews need to return to First Priority routes and some Second Priority routes to keep them clear before moving to other routes.
  • As temperatures rise and snow melts over the coming days, residents can help reduce flooding risks by clearing nearby catch basins of snow and ice to allow melting snow and slush to drain properly.
  • To keep drainage paths open, please do not put snow on the road when clearing sidewalks and driveways.
