After the first big snow storm of the season, the City of Windsor is digging out and officials want you to know when you can expect relief on your block.
Plow and salt crews are actively working in residential areas of Windsor, Monday morning, following a busy Sunday on Windsor’s main routes.
Officials say main routes are mostly in good shape, but drivers face bare and wet conditions.
All available plows moved in to residential areas early this morning, and city hall officials say a typical pass of the entire city takes roughly 24 hours — so expect some covered side streets throughout the day.
The city says you can help with the clean up by removing vehicles from streets where possible.
As always, clearing sidewalks next to property is the property owner’s responsibility.
Specifically, the city says all sidewalks are to be cleared 4 hours after a snow fall and/or ice formation for commercial property owners, and after 12 hours for residential property owners.
As well, under the Highway Traffic Act and City of Windsor by-laws, residents are prohibited from shovelling snow back onto the street while clearing sidewalks and driveways.
Officials say this creates dangerous road conditions for drivers.
