Snow & Ice Control
The Town of Whitecourt utilizes a variety of snow clearing and ice control methods to keep Whitecourt roads and walkways safe.
Snow & Ice Control Practices
The Town's initial action is to spread sand at intersections and slippery locations. This is followed by clearing (plowing), and removal of snow in limited areas. These activities take place seven days a week, at all hours that staff and equipment are available.
Road and sidewalks are done in a priority order to maximize safe travel for the greatest number of users.
Major arterial roads and collector roadways, to give good access to within a few blocks of most areas and allow school bus operations.
Downtown business district, to allow owners time in advance to clean adjacent sidewalks.
Residential or local roadways.
