Snow plow Mississauga

A winter snowstorm hit southern Ontario and Mississauga is prepped and ready.

The city is so ready they have an interactive map that shows real-time data on what streets are being snow plowed.

The City of Mississauga 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

The City plows when five centimetres of snow or more accumulate. If there is less than five centimetres of snow, roads, sidewalks, bus stops and trails are salted, but not plowed.


Major and priority roads, priority sidewalks, bus stops, pedestrian crossings, and specific trails:

Less than 5 cm of snow
Salted within 12 hours after the end of a snowfall

5 to 15 cm of snow
Plowed and salted within 12 hours after the end of a snowfall

15 to 30 cm of snow
Plowed and salted within 24 hours after the end of a snowfall

More than 30 cm of snow or back-to-back storms
Plowed and salted more than 24 hours after the end of a snowfall


Residential and secondary roads

Less than 5 cm of snow
Salted within 24 hours after the end of a snowfall

5 to 15 cm of snow
Plowed and salted within 24 hours after the end of a snowfall

15 to 30 cm of snow
Plowed and salted within 36 hours after the end of a snowfall

More than 30 cm of snow or back-to-back storms
Plowed and salted more than 36 hours after the end of a snowfall


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

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.
