Snow removal underway

Kelowna and West Kelowna operating under priority system

  • Jan. 4, 2016 3:00 p.m.

The cities of Kelowna and West Kelowna are working to clear snow from streets.

Both cities have a priority based snow removal system.  Kelowna is focusing on Priority 1 and 2 roads, which are high-traffic roads, collector roads, bus routes, school zones, town centres and emergency vehicle stations.  West Kelowna is doing much of the same, focusing on arterial and collector roads, transit routes, roads with steep grades, school zones, bus routes, town centres and population centres.  Once those are taken care of, priority will shift to local roads and then finally laneways.  Highways 97 and 33 are maintained by the province.

Kelowna and West Kelowna staff are asking residents to move parked cars from streets to help speed up the process and allow for a more thorough removal.  The fire departments are also asking snow to be cleared from fire hydrants by residents in the area.
