The City of Red Deer has fallen behind on its downtown plowing efforts.
The city says the higher than average snowfall in November, ice and packed snow has slowed down the plows.
Crews were expected to finish the downtown core Wednesday night. Work was expected to wrap up before this morning’s commute.
The average snowfall for the month of November over the last 13 years is 15.9 cm with the highest recorded snowfall of 32 cm in 2006. So far Red Deer has received more than 60 cm this month.
Crews are also plowing sidewalks, transit stops, and select park trails while sanders work to maintain traction in all 12 sanding zones.
While crews are out working, residents are reminded to drive according to road and weather conditions.
Residents are encouraged to help the city identify areas of concern by reporting them to the Public Works department at 403-342-8238.
