Plows attack bus routes, priority 4 roads

Red Deer city crews are ramping up snow removal efforts on Priority 4 roads including bus routes in residential areas and streets running adjacent to schools that were completed before the Dec. 2 snowfall.

The work started on Monday and is expected to wrap up by Dec. 22, depending on the weather.

The residential plow blitz is now completed.

Greg Sikora, city Public Works Department manager, said almost two-thirds of the Priority 4 roads were done before the recent heavy snowfall and now they need to head back to those roads for another clearing.

“We’ll be working on collectors — the main roadways that run through a residential neighbourhood such as Jordan Parkway and Lancaster Drive,” he said.

No Parking signs were placed in Priority 4 areas on Saturday to let residents know to remove their vehicles before streets are plowed.

If vehicles are left parked on signed streets they will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

Two crews will work six days a week, excluding Sundays, with one starting in Fairview and another starting in Woodlea.

Crews will be in the following neighbourhoods:


Riverside Meadows

Riverside Industrial

Oriole Park

Highland Green


Sunnybrook South



South Hill

West Park



Michener Hill

Clearview Meadows

Clearview Ridge



Deer Park





If Red Deer receives another heavy snowfall, Priority 4 removal will be postponed to focus on Priority 1 and 2 roadways.

Residents are encouraged to help the city identify areas of concern by reporting them to the Public Works Department at 403-342-8238.
