Roads are maintained in a priority sequence, beginning with Regional Roads, arterial and collector roads, During a snowstorm, road crews will keep these roads as clear as possible to ensure the safety of drivers and allow for emergency vehicles to respond to calls quickly and safely.
Snow-clearing operations begin on these roads once 2 cm of snow has accumulated. Regional, arterial and collector roads are cleared to bare pavement within 2 to 12 hours following the end of the winter storm event, depending on snow accumulations.
Residential roads are plowed after the priority areas have been cleared and 10cm of snow accumulation has occurred.
With accumulation of 5 cm or more of snow, sidewalks and pathways associated with schools, transit routes and major pedestrian travel are plowed. These sidewalk snow removal routes have three classifications and are maintained based on a priority sequence.
We offer the Windrow Removal Program to help seniors and persons with disabilities living in urban Milton remove the piles of snow left at the bottom of driveways after the snowplow passes (windrows). The service helps remove windrows created during plowing following a snowfall of 10cm (4 inches) or more. The program is limited to 50 eligible residences.
