Brampton city council approves new improvements for winter operations
The snow arrived earlier than anticipated this year, so Brampton's crews are working to ensure they leave areas clear for residents.
Brampton City Council recently approved a variety of winter operations improvements to make the season safer and easier for all Bramptonians.
p>This includes the increase of service levels on local roads from 7.5 cm accumulation to 5.0 cm; which means that crews will dispatch earlier during the event of winter weather.
On top of this, residents can now see which roads and sidewalks have already been cleared by using the city's newly launched Plow Tracker.
Brampton reminds residents that there are measures everyone can take to make it a safer season for all.
This includes clearing sidewalks of ice, snow and slush before 11:00 a.m. on the day after the snowfall, refraining from parking on streets so that plows and emergency vehicles can pass by and by calling 3-1-1 to let the city know if your street requires further attention 24 hours after a snowfall.
