Environment Canada forecasts up to 15 cm of snow for Niagara Falls, becoming heavy at times this afternoon, continuing into the night.
Municipal staff have been preparing for the inclement weather, conducting anti-icing operations on all designated routes, including arterial roads, bridge decks, hills and sidewalk routes. Crews are currently making final equipment preparations and will conduct evening patrols.
Evening commuters will likely be facing less than ideal road conditions on the way home, and are advised to plan additional time and exercise caution.
No on-street parking is currently in effect for Niagara Falls. Parked cars make plowing difficult, and sometimes impossible. If vehicles are not removed from City streets during plowing, and are found to contravene the by-law, they will be towed. With your help, winter maintenance crews can plow snow faster and more efficiently and you will reduce the chances of having to dig your car out of a snow drift.
Additional updates will be sent as events unfold and operational needs and responses change.
