Description and Service Details
Description (Service) Snow Removal: 
Main Routes 
* Main routes are salted and/or ploughed once snow begins to fall and accumulate.  
* There are currently 21 main salt/plough routes consisting of roads classified as Expressway, Arterial, and Collector as defined by the City of Windsor Official Plan.  
* These routes also include fire/hospital emergency routes and Transit Windsor bus routes.  
* If accumulation exceeds 5 centimetres (2 inches) during a snowfall, salting may cease temporarily and ploughing be utilized as appropriate for the conditions.  
* Also, if the temperature is below -12°C (10°F) during a snowfall, salt begins to lose its effectiveness, and depending upon the snow accumulation, salting may cease temporarily and ploughing be utilized as appropriate for the conditions.  
Local/Residential Streets 
* Streets are salted and/or ploughed in the vicinity of schools during the normal workday once main routes have been cleared.  
* Intersections are salted and/or ploughed when conditions warrant 
* Residential streets are ploughed when accumulation exceeds 10 centimetres (4 inches), once main routes have been cleared. 
* In order to allow for a more efficient residential snow plough operation and to avoid cars from being ploughed in, the City recommends that residents remove their parked cars from roadways until they are cleared. 
* Snow is to be cleared by abutting property owners as per City by-law.  
Bus Stops 
* If accumulation exceeded 15 centimetres (6 inches) and all roadways have been cleared, bus stops identified by Transit Windsor as a priority will be cleared.
