How do I learn about road conditions?

Our telephone lines are understandably busy during severe weather conditions. We advise limiting your travel, or staying off the roads entirely if possible. Check for newspaper, radio and television bulletins about road conditions.

Call Public Works primarily to alert us if a street has been missed or if there is some special problem relating to the snow removal operations. Please do not call for missed residential streets until 24 hours after the snow event has ended.
