Brampton plans to clear the way this winter

BRAMPTON – Winter weather has arrived and Brampton’s crews are ready! Our team has been working around the clock to ensure we are prepared to clear roads, City-owned sidewalks, transit stops, school crossings, and recreational trails so that residents can get to where they are going safely.

The City reminds residents that being winter-ready is a team effort and with everyone’s help, this season can be safer for all:
• Clear sidewalks of ice, snow, and slush promptly after snowfall;
• Parking on streets is not allowed and will be enforced during winter weather events. Please move vehicles to ensure plows and emergency vehicles can safely pass by;
• If it has been more than 24 hours since the snowfall has ended and your street still requires attention, let the City know by calling 311, emailing 311@brampton.ca, visiting www.311brampton.ca; or using the 311 app;
• Snow removal financial assistance is available to eligible seniors and homeowners with physical disabilities. Learn more: ow.ly/D2R050xgPq2.

Last year, Brampton City Council approved increasing service levels on local roads from 7.5 cm accumulation to 5.0 cm, meaning crews are dispatched sooner during a winter weather event. Additionally, residents can see what roads and sidewalks crews have been cleared using the City’s Plow Tracker on www.brampton.ca/snow, and new this year, on the 311 mobile app.
