With the current forecast of 10-15 cm of snow over the next 48 hours, we have taken the proactive approach of lowering the speed limit on Whoop-Up Drive to 60 km/h. Crews are continuing to monitor Whoop-up Drive as well as all other streets in the City.
Snow crews have been sanding/salting all Priority 1 Routes as well as any problem areas within the city, but with the continued cold temperatures de-icing chemicals are less effective.
Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously on bridge decks and at intersections around the city.
