Environment Canada has issued a snowfall warning for Friday, February 22, 2018.
The City crews have been salting and putting up road closures signs. During the snowfall, crews will be clearing up priority locations. 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.
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.
