The City of Windsor say that all main roads in Windsor are in great shape this morning, and that residential streets are partly snow covered and slushy, but with temperatures remaining above freezing today and tomorrow ploughing residential streets will not be necessary.
“It looks like Mother Nature is cooperating”, said Maintenance Manager Pete Matheson. “We’ve been able to get the main streets in great condition and now the side street snow is melting”.
Matheson says the timing of the snow was excellent for most commuters and the only trouble continues to revolve around snow from private parking lots being pushed on to the public right of way.
“That’s a problem we see each snow fall”, said Matheson. “We really need the private plough operators to keep the snow in the parking lots and avoid creating dangerous driving situations and extra work for city ploughs. It’s a safety issue and a liability issue that everyone should be concerned about, including plough operators and the business owners who hire them”.
