Winter Road Maintenance

Streets

Our crews make use of state-of-the-art technology which predicts when cold weather is coming.

What happens when we forecast cold weather?

  • We pre-treat our roads with a de-icing brine.

What about snow?

When a lot of snowfall is likely, we prioritize certain roads.

  • Major and collector streets.
  • Transit routes designated as Snow Emergency Routes.
  • Major residential hills. We work hard to treat them within 24 hours of a snowfall.

We can only deal with minor collector roads and residential streets after we clear our top priority streets.

Sidewalks

We clear sidewalks on bridges.

It is up to you to keep the sidewalks around your house clear.
