Hamilton plow tracker: Schools are open, but the roads are ugly
Published December 15, 2022 at 8:15 am
Hamilton’s two major school boards and post-secondary institutions are open, and while the city didn’t get hit with the amount of overnight snow that neighbouring regions did, Thursday morning’s commute to work and school will be slow due to the freezing rain that has blanketed the streets.
Up to 15 millimetres is expected by 9 a.m., prompting Environment Canada to issue a freezing rain warning for the area.
Rain is expected to be replaced by snow Thursday afternoon, and it will continue through the evening.
The city has deployed proactive ice-clearing measures by applying de-icing materials to the roads.
There are no program impacts as a result of the inclement weather. Waste collections staff are out on their scheduled routes. @HSR service has started on schedule today, however, buses may experience delays as weather conditions change. #HamOnt
