Snow falls on Rosedale Avenue this afternoon

Windsor is getting its first winter storm of the season and salting has started on City streets.

We’re expected to see snowfall totalling up to 15 centimetres by Thursday morning. Salt trucks have been dispatched to arterial and collector streets and several roads have already been ploughed. Since the snow is still falling, the City says the ploughing of main roads is estimated to continue until Thursday morning, after which time clearing of residential streets will begin if final snowfall exceeds 10cm.

Residential streets will not be ploughed until the arterial and collector streets are cleared and the snow has stopped.

Beginning tonight, the City says all arenas, community centre and other municipal parking lots are being cleared to allow residents to park. Removing automobiles from the street will allow ploughs to clear snow from the roadway in an efficient manner.

Residents are reminded to shovel the sidewalks abutting their property. The City says “It’s neighbourly, and it’s the law.”

If you must leave your home by car today or tomorrow, please stay alert, slow down and stay in control. Leave plenty of time to reach your destination safely.
