What determines the street-clearing schedule?
Snow clearing in Beaumont begins on priority roads after an accumulation of 2 to 5 centimeters of snow. This takes place primarily during the week. Neighbourhood clearing is not typically done on the weekends as this is the time when most vehicles are parked on the roadways due to people being home from work or visiting guests. The abundance of parked vehicles makes it difficult for snow clearing equipment to pass through.
