Winter wonderlands can be beautiful, but they also pose safety hazards due to the slippery conditions brought on by snow and ice. The City of White Rock regularly monitors two major weather forecaster providers in order to have enough time to prepare our trucks and crews ahead of any storm. We dispatch equipment as needed and apply a pre-salt to road surfaces.
To make the most of the available resources, our priority locations for snow and ice removal are:
- Major roads
- Bus routes
- Emergency access routes (including Peace Arch Hospital)
Below is the City's Snow Control Map showing priority routes. Click on the map to see an enlarged version or click here for the PDF.
Due to the winter weather conditions, and your safety, there will likely be road closures. Please note that road closures during a snowfall are put in place for your safety. These closures are often due to the steep and slippery conditions of the road. Please respect the closures and do not attempt to drive through these roads.
