City of Red Deer ploughing crews are set to do more snow clearing today on residential streets in Lancaster Green, Vanier Woods, Vanier East, Oriole Park West and Oriole Park.

City of Red Deer ploughing crews are set to do more snow clearing today on residential streets in Lancaster Green, Vanier Woods, Vanier East, Oriole Park West and Oriole Park.

Residents are asked to move vehicles that are parked on the streets, where possible. Cars or trucks left on the road might be encircled by a windrow of snow, as ploughs are forced to go around them.

Windrows will be left on both sides of the street, which means residents will have to shovel snow from the bottom of their driveways.

On Saturday, road crews cleared the surface of residential streets in Deer Park Estates, Devonshire, Lonsdale, and Lancaster Meadows. Crews will make their way to other residential neighbourhoods this week (progress reports are available at www.reddeer.ca).

This latest surface ploughing effort is expected to be completed by Jan. 14.

So far, Red Deer has received 110 cm of snow since Nov. 1. This is 90 per cent of the snow that typically falls all season, as the city sees 140 cm of snowfall during an average winter.

Residents are reminded not to shovel snow from their properties or sidewalks onto the street, and to ensure nearby fire hydrants are clear of snow, in case of emergency.
