As snow accumulates on Beaumont’s roadways we begin plowing by prioritizing the highest traffic volume roads first.
There are five (5) service levels for snow plowing:
|Priority||Roadways||Snow Conditions and Timeframe|
|1||24 hours after 5 cm snowfall or equivalent snowdrift|
|2||after Priority 1 is complete|
|3||10 cm snowpack measured from the centre of the road, and after Priority 1 and 2 have been completed|
|4||12 cm snowpack measured from the centre of the road, and after Priority 1 to 3 have been completed|
|5||After a snowfall and after Priority 1 to 4 have been completed|
Snow plowing may occur on any street, road or lane at any time if the street becomes impassable for emergency response vehicles.
Snowfall is measured at the Beaumont Operations Facility.
Snowpack is measured from the center of residential roads.
