ALERT Newmarket Snow storm and snow removal update


“AN UPDATE FROM OUR MANAGER OF PUBLIC WORKS SERVICES.”



Public Works completed a round of sanding since early this morning and began plowing as of 12:00 pm today on the primary roots.  


The Parks department were out sanding/scraping the sidewalks and parking lots.
As the snow storm continues to pass over the Region and changes into rain the following is in place for Public Works to address:

Sidewalks -- plan is to have some staff stay until 6:30PM to look after the evening commute. During this time we will be focusing on regional roads and the major arteries through the center of town and the facility Parking lots. We will continue to monitor the weather through the night and respond tomorrow morning accordingly. 

Roads - Six (6) large plough trucks will continue to plough the primaries till 10 pm. During the evening commute it is difficult to accomplish snow clearing operations. At 10 pm the on call staff and contractor (11 trucks in total) will begin a full street clearing operation and will continue during the overnight. 



Once the temperatures changes and rain arrives Public Works will adjust their strategy accordingly.

ALERT Newmarket Snow storm and snow removal update



 The York District School Board has cancelled ALL permits for after school and this evening.
 
YRDSB information regarding extreme weather can be found here:


Town of Newmarket Public Works Update

Newmarket Public Works performed a sanding operation last night between 6 pm and 10 pm. Road patrol made the call at 4;15 am this morning as the high winds blew the snow in very quickly. PWS staff began sanding/plowing primaries around  5 am.  As we have seen the conditions in the past few hours have been dangerous for the public driving or walking. This has also impacted our availability to clear roads. Presently, PWS has our trucks in the different areas to clear primaries and will continue this into the evening hours.

At 10 pm an eleven plough truck response will begin a full ploughing operation and will continue during the overnight hours.  

We continue to monitor the weather.

Please advise residents to be patient and understanding during this weather event and cleanup, it will take time.

ALERT Newmarket Snow storm and snow removal update

Newmarket Snow Storm Sunday December 11 - Monday December 12 2016

Newmarket Public Works Staff began monitoring the snow yesterday ( Saturday December 10th) afternoon. Road patrol made the call to begin winter maintenance operations at  9:00pm. By 1:30 am, snow accumulation had increased and operations changed to plowing. Parks began sidewalks/parking lots by 5:00am and continue to perform necessary operations on those areas. 


Environment Canada were calling for another snow event which could become significant by coming Sunday/Monday. Temperatures are forecasted below the norms for the next couple of days.  The plan of action will consist of a round of material on primaries to start, if needed secondaries will be covered also. Due to the possible length and gradual severety of this storm PWS are performing sand/salt operations on all primary roads. Weather and road conditions.





Plowing operations began last night at 11pm. Road patrol reports streets are snow packed and accumulation is well within the 6cm threshold for scraping operations. Staff will continue plowing operations into monday morning at which time snow is forecasted to taper off significantly.  

Expect some updates sometime this morning as to when to expect roads, sidewalks, parking lots and trails to be cleared.
