In most cases snow can be managed within the existing road allowance.  However, when the City receives large amounts of snow, the windrows left by the plowing operations can restrict traffic flow, interfere with both pedestrians and parking and obstruct sightlines.  When this happens, the City must collect the snow and remove it to designated snow storage and snow melter sites.

Snow removal involves the use of snow melters, snow blowers, front end-loaders and dump trucks.

Transportation Services maintains a network of five snow storage and three snow melter sites throughout the city.

The snow storage site locations for this winter are as follows:

  • Keelesdale North Park
  • Unwin Avenue
  • New Toronto Street
  • Transit Road
  • Morningside Yard

The snow melter site locations for this winter are as follows:

  • Budapest Park
  • Transit Road
  • Morningside Yard
