City And Contract Crews Ready For Snow

With Environment Canada calling for up to 20 centimetres of snow overnight tonight and into Saturday, the City of Windsor wants to ensure that residents know the plan for road clearing.

City staff monitor weather forecasts and begin salting, when required, to help ensure roads remain as safe as possible. Plowing starts once the snowfall accumulation reaches five centimetres, and an average route takes from three to six hours to complete once the snow has stopped falling, depending on the time of day and traffic conditions.

Once the main roads are clear, and only if more than 10 centimetres of snow have fallen, trucks will then move into residential areas.

Motorists are asked to be patient when travelling behind a plow and give operators plenty of room. Plows typically operate at up to 40 kilometres per hour. Following too close to a snowplow can lead to poor visibility, and vehicles risk being hit by thrown snow, salt or rocks.

Residents and property owners are reminded that clearing of sidewalks abutting their property is their responsibility.
