Neighbourhoods to be Graded Alerted by Signs, Web Updates
January 25, 2011
City of Edmonton crews are working to grade residential streets down to bare pavement and will alert residents through signs and website updates when they are on the way. A schedule of neighbourhoods being plowed this week is available by visiting Residential Snow Plowing.
Large electronic signs will be posted at major entrances into neighbourhoods, and smaller wooden signs placed throughout communities at least 24 hours prior to crews’ arrival. Streets will be plowed down to the pavement in order to better deal with the softer snow pack and ruts that form as a result of higher temperatures. It is anticipated that barring further significant snowfall, graders will remain in residential areas for approximately two weeks.
When signage appears, residents in those specific neighbourhoods are asked to remove their vehicles from the street and park elsewhere so that crews can plow from curb to curb, providing for wider streets and ease of passage for drivers.
Citizens are reminded that windrows will not be removed from residential areas following the blading, and that those who wish to continue using on-street parking after crews have finished are required to clear a space at curb side for themselves. Windrows in front of driveways will be reduced in height to a maximum of 30 cm, but this may not take place for up to 24 hours following the completion of plowing.
