Additional resources called in to deal with the storm

November 28, 2014


The County will be implementing the Council approved un-climatic conditions clause, which accelerates snow removal activities to improve mobility on all streets. Snow route and residential clearing will occur at the same time. This means that once snow routes have been completed in a particular neighbourhood, residential streets in that neighbourhood will be initiated, without waiting for all of the snow routes in Sherwood Park to be cleared.

  • A snow route parking ban will go into effect Saturday, November 29 at 12 Noon in Sherwood Park. Parking restrictions will be enforced on collector roads with permanent snow route signage. 
  • Residential street clearing will start Monday. Watch for orange snow removal no parking signs in your neighbourhood with associated dates. 
  • Residents can expect to see windrows remain for longer periods as a result of simultaneous snow removal efforts. 
  • In rural areas, grid roads are expected to be completed Monday and Country Residential by Wednesday.

Residents are encouraged to stay up-to-date on snow clearing efforts in their neighbourhoods and move vehicles in a timely fashion to help the County clear the snow faster.
