Winter Control Activities

Date:     February 11, 2018

Winter Control Activities – Planned for Monday February 12, 2018

Today's warmer temperatures combined with sand mix spread following the last plow session loosened much of the snow packed streets.

In an effort to remove more snow from streets ahead of the regular daytime traffic, plow units will again be dispatched at 4:00 a.m. tomorrow morning (February 12) to carry out a complete plow operation of both primary and secondary roads.

Laneways and parking lots will be completed following the completion of secondary roads.

Bylaw Enforcement will be assisting plowing operations as well in the early hours with parked vehicles interfering with plow operations.

Residents are reminded that during winter weather conditions pushing or blowing snow and ice onto or across public roadways creates an unsafe situation for drivers.  Residents can assist  in the efficiency of the operation by not parking vehicles on roadways during winter control activities

Section 181, Highway Traffic Act  - "No person shall deposit snow or ice on a roadway without permission in writing to do so from the Ministry or the road authority responsible for the maintenance of the road"

If you notice poor or dangerous road conditions, please forward to our staff at the City Works Yard at 905-835-5079 and your concerns will be addressed as soon as possible.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
