Snow Crews Ready

​Snowy weather is in the forecast for Thanksgiving Day, this Monday Oct. 10, and City of Lethbridge snow clearing crews are ready to mobilize.

Initial sanding, salting, and snow clearing efforts will focus on Priority 1 routes throughout the city. These include:

  • Whoop-Up Drive
  • University Drive
  • Bridge Drive
  • Mayor Magrath Drive
  • Scenic Drive
  • 26 Avenue North
  • 28 Street North
  • 1 Avenue South west of Scenic Drive
  • 5 Avenue North (from Hwy 3 to Stafford Dr.)

Priority 1 routes are determined based on traffic volume and road incline. Motorists are reminded to adjust their driving for winter road conditions. Winter driving tips:

  • Slow down and drive with care
  • Maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you
  • Stay a safe distance behind snow plows and sand trucks
  • Never pass a snow plow or sand truck
