The Winter Operations Program keeps roads and sidewalks safe and passable for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists. 24-hour patrols continuously check road conditions and staff monitor weather forecasts and pavement temperature.  Even before the snow starts to fall, our crews swing into action and they work continuously until the storm is over. The City has 600 snow plows, 300 sidewalk plows and 200 salt trucks ready to tackle the winter season.
