Snow Clearing to Continue Into Weekend

Friday, January 30, 2015 @ 2:00 PM

Prince George, B.C. – City crews will be working into the weekend to get the fresh dump of snow off the streets of Prince George.

The people at City Hall say due to the ongoing snow event in the region and the anticipated drop in temperature, the City of Prince George has added more snow clearing shifts. During the night shift tonight, crews will be clearing priority one and priority two routes beginning in the downtown area.

Crews will continue clearing priority one and priority two routes during the day shift tomorrow. Salting, sanding, and sidewalk operations will continue on routes around the city.

Residents are reminded of parking restrictions during snow and ice operations. For a complete list of parking restrictions, go to www.princegeorge.ca/snow.


I’m sorry, but was someone expecting it to stop?

Wonder how many whiners are going to complain that if the roads are plowed how they aren’t sanded or why did they sand instead of salt or how come it took 3 days to plow my street this time when last time it was done right away

There is no pleasing some people

Why is the downtown a priority on a weekend. Shouldn’t the busy shopping areas like Costco neighborhood and the Westwood area around Pine centre be first.
Or is the needle exchange and homeless shelters streets the priority ?

Why is the downtown a priority at all?

Just get r done :)

I have cheese!

Was just driving down Massey after work. Saw a city truck salting the road, not plowing at all.

Not sure why they are salting on top of more than 15cm of snow, when it’s supposed to get down to about -10’C tonight.

Am I mistaken, or is that a waste of time and money?

They will salt/ sand intersections first to make them safer, plowing takes a lot more time

A “snow event”? Does that have something to do with the winter games. Why is everything either an “event” or an “experience” now? How was your shopping experience? How was your dining experience during your dining event?

dan: That’s so it can get half melted and then freeze. Then they have to wait for mother nature to take care of it.

Removing ice makes sense, I guess?

“Am I mistaken, or is that a waste of time and money?”


Wasting time and money is the forte of every municipal government isn’t it?
