Winter Season Preparedness

Jan 15, 2020

Wet, icy, and snowy roads make driving conditions a challenge during the winter season. The City of Delta regularly monitors roads and our Engineering Operations team is prepared to respond to poor road conditions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In the event of snow and ice, roads will be cleared based on priority - see priority list below.

First Priority Routes

Public transit routes, major collectors, select school access roadways and some roads in hilly areas. Pre-wetting, salting, sanding and snowplowing are carried out as long as poor conditions exist.

Second Priority Routes

Secondary through roads in residential areas, select rural roads, and school routes.

Other Routes

Minor residential streets and cul-de-sacs. Work is carried out after First and Second priority routes have been cleared, on a site specific basis, usually at the request of the residents and normally after inspection by a supervisor.
