Update on Snow Removal

Clearing of driving lanes on residential streets has been completed. Crews will now focus their attention on the following:

  • Continuing to clean and clear priority streets as needed;
  • Residential streets that need more attention to improve drivability;
  • Addressing problem areas on residential streets (e.g. snow piles near driveways or in front of fire hydrants);
  • Removal of snow in Business Improvement Districts;
  • Industrial areas.

Where piles of snow present a clear issue, they will be removed. This includes large piles that restrict sight lines on priority roads and piles of especially heavy, packed snow around driveway entrances and parked vehicles. With the massive accumulation of snow, there will still be piles of snow on residential streets reducing on-street parking at times. Crews will return in the coming weeks for snow removal, once the other priorities have been addressed.
