Clearing of Residential Streets to Begin Friday
The City of Windsor is continuing to clean up following Wednesday's snowfall and is asking for patience and cooperation from residents in making the best of the ongoing situation. More snow is in the forecast throughout today with additional accumulation possible this evening.
Snow clearing crews will move into residential areas on Friday morning. We estimate the snow removal will take approximately 16 to 24 hours to reach the entire city. Where possible, please remove vehicles from the street to make it easier for plows to clear the street. Crews continue to ensure that main routes and arterial roads remain clear with additional clearing on collector roads today.
Residents are reminded that sidewalks abutting their property are their responsibility to clear. All sidewalks are to be cleared 12 hours after the snowfall ends for residential property owners and 4 hours for commercial property owners. Removing snow completely from your sidewalk helps ensure that people with mobility limitations or assistive devices are able to pass through freely.
As well, under the Highway Traffic Act and City of Windsor by-laws, residents and private snow removal operators are prohibited from pushing snow back onto the street while clearing sidewalks and driveways, as this creates unsafe road conditions for motorists. .
Just a reminder, the City’s Snow Angels volunteer snow removal program is still looking for volunteers.
