24/7 snow removal ends with the completion of residential local roads

Monday, February 7, 2022

With all of the City’s residential local roads cleared, Leduc’s snow removal crews go back to their 12-hour schedule for the winter season. As of last week, crews have hauled 9,064 truckloads of snow; compared to the winter of 2019-2020 where crews removed 8,335 loads for the whole season. This year’s numbers put into perspective the amount of snow the City has received with still a couple of months left to go until spring.

“This winter has presented us with unique challenges to overcome and we appreciate everyone’s support and understanding,” says Mayor Bob Young. “Snow removal is a team effort and we want to thank our residents for their help by moving vehicles to create space so the equipment can work quickly and efficiently. Of course, a big thank you as well to the snow removal staff for their hard work and dedication in keeping our community safe and mobile.” 

The 24-hour snow removal schedule began on Jan. 26, with nine neighbourhoods completed in under two weeks. The trade-offs with the 24-hour schedule included some evening noise disturbances and delayed pickup of windrows by prioritizing blading of streets.

Crews will be returning to some roads to do general cleanup and clearing back alleys around waste collection days in the following weeks. Residents can notify crews of any issues or concerns through the SeeClickFix app.
