With the fluctuating temperatures, the City’s Public Works team would like to provide the following updates.

Staff are working to keep the roadways safe and clear. City plow trucks and graders will be clearing as much snow and ice as possible. This will likely take place during the night and into the morning. The areas of focus for this evening include:

  • P Patch
  • Elizabeth Street to Church Street south of Wellington and
  • Great Northern Road to North Street between McNabb Street and St. George’s Avenue to Northern Avenue.

Residents are reminded to allow extra time for driveway maintenance as there may be more snow than usual at the end of driveways.

Motorists are also reminded to drive according to the conditions and to give snowplow operators room to clear routes safely and efficiently. Under By-law 77-200-5(14), parking of vehicles on city streets is not permitted during the winter months between midnight and 6 a.m. however, residents are also asked to not park on city streets during the day. This will assist in the efficiency of snow removal.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie thanks residents for their patience and cooperation during its clean up efforts. For more information, residents may contact Public Works at 705.759.5201 or email [email protected].
