Mississauga officials are urging patience as crews work to clear the streets and sidewalks after yesterday’s massive snow storm that reportedly dumped as much as 45cm on parts of the city.

“We have not seen this much snow in a long time and ask for your patience as we work to get things cleared as quickly as we can,” City of Mississauga officials tweeted late yesterday.

The City tweeted this morning that cleanup efforts are still ongoing and that it will take some time to restore all roads and sidewalks to safe conditions.

“Snow clearing in residential areas, on priority sidewalks and at bus stops is ongoing and will take time,” City snow-clearing crews tweeted. “Remember, streets with parked cars on them are difficult to clear properly. Please move parked vehicles so that we can access your street safely.”

Officials at MiWay, the city’s public transit service, say there still might be minor delays on some routes today as storm cleanup efforts continue.

They add that Kipling Bus Terminal in east Mississauga remains inaccessible due to buildup of snow.

Meanwhile, police in Mississauga and across the GTA are reporting dozens of collisions on the roads this morning as motorists continue to drive too fast for the conditions.

Police urge people to stay off the roads, if possible. For those who are driving, they remind them to be extra cautious as road conditions in many places are dangerous even for vehicles with all-season tires.

Elsewhere, Mississauga libraries remain closed again today, officials say.

Holds and due dates will be extended.

Peel Region Public Works tweeted this morning that Mississauga and Brampton residents are to put out their garbage one day later than usual this week.

“Due to the winter storm and unsafe road conditions, residents are asked to put out waste one day later this week (if your day is Monday, put waste out on Tuesday, etc.),” Region officials tweeted.
