Snow Update - Monday, September 30, 2019

Snow is expected to continue falling through today adding to total accumulations of approximately 31 cms that fell in Calgary over the weekend. Today, City crews are continuing their work on the Priority 1 roads, Transit facilities, City-maintained sidewalks, bike lanes and some park pathways.

Current Status:

  • Crews continue plowing and salting Priority 1 (P1) routes, such as Crowchild Trail, Memorial Drive and Macleod Trail. (Please note: Deerfoot Trail and Stoney Trail are maintained by the Province which has its own snow clearing plan.)
  • Crews are also working to clear snow on Priority 2 (P2) routes, which includes connector roads such as Kensington Road, Acadia Drive and bus routes.
  • Hand crews are working on pedestrian infrastructure including City-maintained sidewalks, LRT platforms and staircases.
  • Crews will begin to clear snow on high-traffic pathways in City parks. Check the Pathways, Trails and Bikeways map under the snow and ice control tab to see which pathways and sidewalks are cleared by The City.
  • At this time, we do not anticipate the need to call a snow route parking ban​.

The through-lanes on the major roads are in good winter-driving condition. However, turning lanes, ramps, bridge decks and collector roads may be icy and snow-covered. Calgarians are advised to watch for trouble spots such as hills and bridge decks, and to slow down and drive for winter conditions.

Motorists are advised to check The City’s Traffic Cameras and Road Conditions Map for information on plow locations and road conditions. Transit-users should visit calgarytransit.com for the most up-to-date route impacts.

Residents and homeowners are reminded that, under the bylaw, all snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks adjacent to your property. Please consider being a snow angel – keep an eye out for neighbours who are less able to keep their own walks clear of snow and ice, and help them out.
