City Prepared to Clear the Way this Winter
The City of Mississauga is ready for winter. Our winter crew is ready with 377 pieces of equipment to clear 5,600 lane km of roads; 1,400 lane km of priority sidewalks; 3,700 bus stops and over 1,000 pedestrian crossings.
“We follow a priority route system to ensure public safety. Major roads are cleared first to allow emergency vehicles and public transit to pass. This is followed by residential roads, pedestrian crossings, priority sidewalks and bus stops,” said Mickey Frost, Director of Works Operations & Maintenance. “Residents can receive the latest snow information and updates by following @MississaugaSnow, downloading the Mississauga Roads App or visiting oursnow plow tracker webpage to track the routes for snow plows and salters.”
What we clear when:
· Roads are salted if snowfall is less than eight cm (three inches) or plowed and salted if snowfall is more than eight cm (three inches).
· Major roads are cleared first for emergency and transit vehicles to travel. This is followed by local residential roads, bus stops, pedestrian crossings and priority sidewalks (around hospitals, schools and major transit routes for transit service).
· Priority sidewalks, bus stops and pedestrian crossings are cleared within 24-36 hours after the end of snowfall.
Snow Season Parking:
