With the significant snow event Monday, the City’s Public Works team would like to provide the following updates and reminders.
Staff are currently working to keep the main roadways safe and clear. Snow continues to be cleared first from the main and collector roadways. The clearing of residential areas and designated sidewalks will be delayed until the main roadways and collector roads are cleared and safe.
This will likely take place during the night and into the morning. As a result of the extensive snowfall, residents are advised that the snow plowed to the end of their driveway shall be their responsibility and may be more than usual.
Garbage collection and recycling scheduled for Tuesday will be cancelled. Next Tuesday’s
collection shall allow for a four (4) bag limit for those routes affected.
Motorists are reminded to drive according to the conditions and to give snow plow operators room to clear routes safely and efficiently. The parking by-law remains in effect. Vehicles are not permitted to park on city streets during the winter months between midnight and 6 a.m. however, vehicles parked on the road during a winter event can cause delays during snow removal. Please ensure, where possible, that all vehicles are off of the roadways and not obstructing sidewalks.
The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks residents for their patience and cooperation in helping to keep our streets safe and clear. For more information, residents may contact Public Works at 705.759.5201 or email [email protected].
