Municipal crews continue to respond to the current weather event affecting our area. Prior to this event anti-icing operations were conducted and overnight crews actively maintained arterial and collector roads.
At 4:00 am crews commenced full scale city wide plowing operations to address residential areas. Crews will continue to actively plow and salt arterial and collector roads as part of this operation.
Sidewalk routes are being plowed and salted as part of this operation.
The weather system will start tapering down at approximately 10:00 a.m. in our area. Wind gust of up to 60 km/hr will begin this afternoon causing drifting snow which could impact visibility.
Crews will continue plowing operations well into the evening with Contractor and City loaders being called out to clear cul-de-sacs and crescents following truck plows last pass on the roadways.
Residents are asked to stay clear from plowing equipment to allow them to safely perform this work. Also if possible not to park on the street as it may hinder clearing operations.
Residents who are traveling should check weather forecast before doing so and should leave additional time. When traveling drivers should exercise caution as they may encounter less than ideal road conditions.
Should additional actions be required and update will be sent.
