When does the town clear snow from the roads?

Thu, 23 Jan 2014

The Town of Oakville is ready for winter weather. Armed with plows, sand and salt, our crews are ready to clear your roads and sidewalks as quickly and effectively as possible.

For more information visit the snow clearing page or call the snow line at 905-815-5999.

When does the town clear roads?

  • Primary and secondary roads, such as Trafalgar Road and West Oak Trails, are salted and plowed first to achieve bare pavement. This also maintains access throughout town for emergency service vehicles.
  • Residential roads are only plowed when snow accumulations reach 7.5 centimetres. Residential roads are not plowed or salted to achieve bare pavement and periodic snow-pack conditions can be expected. Residential roads are sanded when conditions warrant, at hills, curves and intersections.
  • The town has a Salt Management Plan to manage salt use and minimize environmental impacts.
