Residential plowing to be finished by March
City crews are expected to finish plowing residential streets sometime in early March.
The plow will take longer than the projected 40 days because of the ice buildups on the streets. The campaign began on Jan. 14.
But the crews have nearly completed clearing and removing the snow from transit routes, collectors and residential streets next to schools (Priority 4). They are expected to finish these areas in mid-February, weather permitting.
Once these areas are completed, the crews will move over to the rest of the residential streets (Priority 6).
Public Works manager Greg Sikora said the additional resources will help speed up the snow and windrow processes.
This winter, 43,000 tonnes of snow have been removed from the Priority 4 routes and another 24,000 tonnes have been removed from Priority 6 routes.
Sikora is reminding residents to move vehicles off the streets when the snow plow signs are placed in their neighbourhoods.
