No matter what the weather does, you have places to go, and the City of Edmonton works hard to help you get there. The City has a comprehensive roadway maintenance program to help keep traffic moving safely in the winter months.
Read on to learn the basics of the winter road maintenance program, and what you can do to help keep Edmonton mobile.
When will streets be sanded?
Sanding is the City’s first line of defense against slippery, unsafe roads. Streets are sanded as required to provide traction.
When will the main streets be plowed?
Plowing begins on main roads when 3 cm of snow has accumulated and more snow is forecasted. Roads are plowed in this order:
During a major plowing event -- after about 10 cm has accumulated on the ground -- you can check plowing status using the interactive map at edmonton.ca/winterroads.
When are Hazeldean's roads bladed?
Blading of residential roads is initiated once a snowpack of about 5 cm has built up. But, it doesn’t begin until highways, freeways, main arterial roads and bus collector routes have been plowed.
Neighbourhoods are always bladed on the same day of the week, similar to garbage pickup. In Hazeldean, our blading occurs on Wednesdays. If blading isn’t fully completed on our snow day, crews will be back over the weekend to finish up.
When are parking bans in effect?
Parking bans can be called anytime from November 15 to March 15 on roads with “seasonal parking ban” signs. Parking bans help ensure that City equipment can do the best possible job of clearing the roads so emergency and transit vehicles as well as motorists can get where they’re going.
Parking bans are called with a minimum of eight hours notice. Sign up for email notifications when parking bans are declared at edmonton.ca/winterroads, or watch for information on the fronts of ETS buses, in local media, on edmonton.ca, on digital message boards around the city and on social media.
Together, residents and the City of Edmonton help maintain the best possible conditions on our roads and sidewalks all winter long.

Keep Your Sidewalks Safe
Snow and ice on sidewalks is hazardous for everyone. People with limited mobility, seniors, children and parents with strollers (and even those with no mobility limitations at all) may be severely injured from a fall on ice or snow.
Uncleared walkways can also make it difficult for those who deliver services in our city—mail carriers, meter readers, delivery drivers and emergency personnel—to do their jobs safely. In fact, each year, hospitals and doctors’ offices are filled with people young and old who have slipped and fallen on poorly maintained sidewalks.
What is my role?
Community Standards Bylaw 14600 requires homeowners and tenants to clear snow and ice from every walk and driveway on or beside their property. Don’t forget about any other properties you own, including derelict and vacant buildings--they may have sidewalks that need to be shovelled too.
Use sand or ice-melting products to start the clearing process if you can’t shovel immediately after a snowfall. The fine for failing to clear sidewalks within 48 hours of the last snowfall is $100, so save yourself the money and get it done!
My neighbours haven’t been shovelling their walk. What can I do?
If you have a concern about a neighbour's uncleared walk:
