City updates on Winter snow event

1

With the significant heavy snow and slush conditions received today, the City would like to provide the following updates and reminders.

Staff are working to keep the roadways safe and clear. Snow will 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. Sidewalks should not be blocked at any time in order to facilitate snow removal. Residents are reminded that the snow plowed to the end of their driveway during a significant snow event is their responsibility and may be more than usual.

Residents are reminded not to place garbage and recycling carts out the night before collection as this will cause issues with snow plowing and snow removal. Garbage and recycling carts should be placed curbside before 7 a.m. the morning of the designated collection day.

Motorists are reminded to drive according to the conditions and allow space for heavy equipment operators to clear and sand roadways safely and efficiently. The parking by-law remains in effect with motorists not permitted to park on city streets during the winter months between midnight and 6 a.m. however, during a winter event, motorists are also asked to not park on city streets during the day. This will assist in the efficiency of snow removal.

Transit Services reminds riders to expect delays as a result of heavy snowfall and slush conditions.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks residents for their patience and cooperation. For more information, contact Public Works at 705-759-5201 or email pwt@cityssm.on.ca.
