City of Windsor plows are working non stop to continue to clean up following yesterday’s record breaking snowfall.

Public Works crews have been out since early Sunday morning plowing arterial and collector routes. Gusting winds are creating snowdrifts in many areas where the plows have already cleared the roads.

Plowing of residential streets is anticipated to start this morning and should take between 24-36 hours to complete. Residents are reminded that sidewalks abutting their property are their responsibility to clear.

As well, under the Highway Traffic Act and City of Windsor By-laws, residents and private snow removal operators are prohibited from pushing snow back onto the street while clearing sidewalks and driveways, as this creates unsafe road conditions for motorists.

Wherever possible, they ask you to remove vehicles from all streets by parking in a driveway, or if available, in a nearby parking lot.

Windsor Fire and Rescue Services is asking that residents keep fire hydrants clear of snow. In the event of a fire, it will be easier for fire crews to gain access to the hydrant.

Any calls to 311 requesting plowing should be delayed until late tomorrow, when crews expect to have covered all areas.
