Have your streets been snow plowed in Mississauga?


Snow has falling and Mississauga is prepped and ready for winter.

Believe it or not, the city is able to clear:

  • 5,600 lane kilometres of roads and on-street bike lanes
  • 1,600 lane kilometres of priority sidewalks
  • 3,400 bus stops
  • 90 kilometres of roadside multi-use trails
  • Over 1,000 pedestrian crossings

“As winter weather approaches, our winter crews and fleet will be ready to respond around the clock, 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” said Mayor Bonnie Crombie. “We also want our residents to be prepared and to stay safe by driving according to weather conditions. Residents are encouraged to clear their sidewalk and assist those who may need help including seniors and people with disabilities.”

For your convenience, there’s also a snow plow tracker you can follow online.

As for how snow clearing works, the city says that roads are salted if snowfall is less than five centimetres or plowed and salted if snowfall is more than five centimetres.

Naturally, major roads are cleared first. Once priority roads are dealt with, local residential roads, bus stops, pedestrian crossings and priority sidewalks (such as those around hospitals, schools and major transit routes) are maintained.

Priority sidewalks, bus stops and pedestrian crossings are cleared within 24-36 hours after a snowfall ends.

Residents should avoid parking on the street in the wake of a major snowfall.

Stay safe and enjoy the winter weather, everyone!
