The sheer volume of snow in some areas is causing significant time impacts to achieving compliance with usual levels of service. In some areas, it is taking an hour to clear one kilometre of road.

All available resources, both internal and external, have been deployed since December 23 when the storm began and work continues with a focus on opening and widening access on affected remaining roads. Please visit for a list of road closures.

Residents are asked to please stay off the roads whenever possible and drive with extra caution. Clearing local roads blocked with snow drifts can be resource and time intensive, so response to some local roads may take longer than desired.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we work to clear the roads.
