Snow Clearing

Sanding and Plowing Activities Update

Update: January 13, 2021

Road crews continue to work across our Priority 1 and Priority 2 roads with ongoing sanding and plowing activities. Snow removal is also occurring today along Crystalridge Drive. Crews are also continuing to work on Priority 3 roads and are working in Zone 3 (Westridge) and Zone 4 (Sheep River) with hauling away large snow piles that were left behind within intersections following the December 22 storm.  Waste collection services are not impacted by these activities so continue to place your collection containers in accordance with Waste Collection schedules.  Removing snow piles from the residential areas across our Town will take time and we ask you do not approach operators while they are engaged in any snow clearing activity for the safety of yourself and the operators.

Refer to Snow and Ice Control map for route and zone information. 

We thank everyone for their continued patience and understanding as we continue with our snow clearing efforts across our Town.  Further updates will be provided as they are available. 

The Town of Okotoks will take reasonable steps to manage snow and ice hazards on public roadways, parking lots, sidewalks, and primary pathways in a systematic and timely manner to prevent or reduce accidents and injuries, ensure safe access for the public and emergency vehicles, promote active transportation, and minimize economic loss to the community. The snow removal program in the Town of Okotoks has been developed over several years and has been revised constantly to fit the ever changing demographics of the Town.
