OTTAWA, ON – The capital is expecting more snow on Sunday and the City is prepared for it.

Snow plows have been filled with salt and are ready to clear the roads.

“At the start of the snow storm, we focus our efforts on clearning snow on our high priority roads – like the 174 and transit-ways”, said Kevin Wylie, Manager Roads and Traffic Operations and Maintenance. 

“This is followed by clearing main roads and collectors.  After seven centimetres, we then clear residential roads.  The final step is clearing intersections, cross-walks and bus stops.”

Mayor Jim Watson said residents need not worry about the roads when the snow falls.

“Even in inclement winter conditions, residents can have confidence that our snow removal crews are hard at work clearing our transportation network and keeping our City moving,” said Mayor Jim Watson. “Clearing the way and getting residents safely to their destination is a high priority for the City during a snow storm.”

Residents are being urged to follow the overnight parking restrictions – when it comes into efffect – to make it easier to clear the roads.
