Residential snow plow starting Saturday: City

St. Albert residents can expect to see snowplows in their neighbourhoods starting March 2.

Just a few days after St. Albert saw the brunt of a massive snowfall across the Edmonton region, residents can expect to see snowplows in their neighbourhoods starting March 2 as the city is embarking on a residential snow removal cycle.

“Snow removal will take place daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until complete,” the city's website says. “Residents are advised to watch for snow removal signs in their neighbourhoods and park their vehicles on their driveways or in their garages, rather than on the streets.”

According to the city's website, plows will begin in Akinsdale before moving into Grandin, after which the remaining 18 residential neighbourhoods will have snow plowed in their area.

A complete list of neighbourhoods, in order, to see snow be removed is available online, however, the city says the order may change depending on weather conditions and waste collection cycles.

“If the equipment pushes large chunks of snow onto your residential sidewalk, please call Public Operations at 780-459-1557 and we will send a crew back to clean the extra snow.”

Starting Feb. 25 and continuing on Feb. 26, about 30 centimetres of snow fell on St. Albert, which was almost 10 centimetres more than any other municipality in the region.

The Weather Network is forecasting an additional five centimetres of snow will fall in St. Albert on Saturday, and a light snowfall is also expected on Monday.
