Neighbourhood blading happens when snow has accumulated on neighbourhood streets. Blade trucks drive the streets, pushing snow to the sides to create safe winter driving conditions.
- During snow events, a city-wide neighbourhood blading program will START (including alleys) after the Arterial and Collector road network has been plowed and is considered to be in safe condition.
- Moving vehicles off the road will help crews clear the roads more efficiently.
- Neighbourhood roads will be bladed to a 5cm snow pack condition (not down to asphalt), according to City policy.
- Neighbourhood blading creates windrows of snow that, as a rule, will not be removed from neighbourhoods, according to City policy.
- If a street is listed as 'Completed' but hasn't been bladed citizens should call 311.
