City crews working to clear streets after weekend snow

City of Lloydminster crews are on city streets working to clear off the snow that arrived following Friday’s snowfall warning issued by Environment Canada.

As the week begins, over a foot of snow has been added to what Lloydminster has seen so far this season, city officials say. Environment Canada has another couple centimetres forecast for Monday to add to the weekend’s snow.

“We can only ask for your patience as workers respond to this latest dump of snow. Plowing is a difficult and time-consuming process, and our teams are working around the clock to ensure that the city’s main road-ways are passable,” says Mayor Gerald Aalbers. “Please drive carefully, and remember to maintain a safe, eight-metre distance from large equipment as we clear municipal roadways.”

Snow Clearing

  • Priority 1 roads are completed day or night and will be completed within two days after a major snowfall that’s more than 5cm.
  • Priority 2 roads are completed as soon as possible after the completion of Priority 1.
  • Priority 1 sidewalks and trails are completed within 72 hours of snowfall. Priority 2 sidewalks and trails are completed as soon as possible after Priority 1 is complete.

More information about the city’s snow clearing and snow removal policies is available at Lloydminster.ca/SnowOps.
