Kelowna road crews trying to keep up with the snow

As the snow continues to fall in Kelowna, the City of Kelowna is reminding residents that crews are out clearing the roads and to use caution while driving throughout the city.

Kelowna streets are cleared on a priority basis. Priority one includes arterial roads such as Gordon Drive. Priority two is classified as collector roads, such as Richter Street, bus routes, school zones, town centres and emergency vehicle stations. Priority three includes local roads within neighbourhoods and priority four includes laneways.

Property owners/occupiers are reminded of their reponsibility to clear snow from sidewalks adjacent to their property.

The xity may perform an in-kind service only when resources are available and may plow sidewalks to one plow width; however, this does not relieve the property owners/occupiers of their responsibility to clear sidewalks along their property.

During this time of year, many Kelowna residents can find it difficult to keep sidewalks free of snow and ice. The City’s Snow Busters Program encourages residents to lend a helping hand and aims to recognize those who help without being asked or expecting something in return.

Residents can nominate their Snow Busters online at kelowna.ca/transportation, by email at snowbusters@kelowna.ca, or can send a letter to City of Kelowna Snow Busters Program, 1435 Water Street, Kelowna BC V1Y 1J4.

For regular inquiries and emergency plowing or sanding after regular business hours, please call 250-469-8600, option 1.
