The City of Guelph says a residential plow-out is beginning Monday morning amid a winter storm that started the night before.
Environment Canada issued a winter storm warning for the city, with up to 35 centimetres of snow expected to fall.
The plow-out is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. on Monday and continue until all roads and sidewalks are cleared, the city said.
Any vehicles on the road past 10 a.m. could be ticketed and towed.
The city said it takes crews about 24 hours to clear the roads after a storm has stopped, but a significant snowfall and changing weather conditions could cause delays.
Main roads are plowed first, followed by secondary roads and residential streets last. The city’s sidewalks and paths usually take about three days.
The city said residents can help clear sidewalks near their property along with keeping fire hydrants and storm drains clear of snow.
Snowplows are out on the road. Help us, help them. Never pass a snowplow and don’t follow too closely. Track where the plows are at https://t.co/Xl39R2pQDQ #Guelph #COGWinter #onstorm pic.twitter.com/jaVwq4MJvr
