Snow Removal Priorities
The Operational Services Department is responsible for maintaining 180 km of roadways and 29 km of walkways and trails. The Municipality of Crowsnest Pass's Operational Services Department clears snow from public roadways according to a 5 level priority system:
|Level A||major transportation routes (arterial) within the municipality, emergency vehicle access, commercial core business areas, and roadways with major slopes.|
|Level B||distribution routes (collector) as well as school zones and industrial areas.|
|Level C||includes the remainder of roadways specifically in residential areas not included under Levels A & B as well as direct access alleys.|
|Level D||includes laneways, municipal owned parking areas, and recreational roadways.|
|includes recreational accesses and the removal of snow in commercial areas to facilitate parking and remaining snow ridges across residential driveways.|
Municipal employees make every possible effort to work expediently to clear the roads after snow accumulation with the manpower and equipment that they have at their disposal. If you have questions or concerns about snow removal, please contact the Operational Services Department at (403) 563-2220 so that we may log your comments and address your concerns, as opposed to directing them to our Operational Services employees when they are out in the community on their personal time.
