Snow Update Feb 10 2018 – Plowing Underway in Windsor Residential Areas

City and Contract Work Crews are busy plowing main roads and residential areas today, and asking for patience from residents and drivers alike.

Following the significant snowfall accumulation over the past couple of days, the amount of snow to remove from roadways is keeping everyone very busy.  Crews are working hard to make the streets safe but they need your help. 

Please do not shovel snow from your driveway back on to the roadway, it makes for dangerous conditions for motorists and it is illegal. “We know people are shovelling and that they get frustrated when they see the plow push snow back up on their freshly cleared driveway, but the roads need to be cleared”, said Operations Executive Director Dwayne Dawson. “If people can wait until they see their road has been plowed to shovel the end of their driveway that might help head-off some frustration”.

Windsor Fire and Rescue Services is also 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. 

Patience is also requested with respect to parking lots at the City’s recreation facilities. Plowing of those areas is difficult through the day, as vehicles are parked in the lot. Clearing of trails will begin once all lots and abutting sidewalks have been taken care of. 

For more information please stay tuned to the local media; visit the City website for general information on snow clearing, including a map of where plows have been.
