Snow and Ice Control

Snow and ice control is important to reduce hazards and provide reasonable winter mobility on roads, sidewalks and pathways.

Snow & Ice Control

As soon as snowfall occurs, the Town begins preparations to sand, salt, plow and move snow from roadways and pathways.

The Town maintains a variety of equipment, including plow trucks, skid steers, small plows and a broom machine to clear and maintain our roads. Public Works crews work alongside contractors to clear priority routes, the downtown and designated pathways along with public sidewalks and walkways.

A priority system ensures our highest-traffic roadways are cleared first.

High River snow removal crews must maintain the driving lane on priority routes to a safe, reasonable winter driving condition. Priority routes include:

  • Major roads such as Macleod Trail, Center Street and High Country Drive.
  • School bus and emergency vehicle routes.
  • Busy intersections, hills and corners.
  • Contractors are in place to clear the downtown sidewalks and some major roads.

Once priority routes are cleared, crews move into residential zones.

During prolonged and heavy snowfall, priority routes may need ongoing attention to keep them safe. Public Works crews are working hard to clear every street in town as quickly and efficiently as possible for your safety.

    We appreciate your cooperation and understanding when crews are working hard to clear every street in town as quickly and efficiently as possible!

    If you would like to share a concern or incident, please use our online Report a Problem form to let us know of any issues, concerns – or kudos to our hard-working crews. This is the fastest way to share information. You can also contact the Public Works Administration or Town Hall directly by calling.
