The clean up of Regina streets in the aftermath of a wicked snow storm continues.
Another sprinkling of snow came overnight, bringing the total since Saturday evening up to 35 centimetres.
Manager of Winter Preparedness Chris Warren said the city is making some progress on the main routes.
- Storm is moving on, but not before burying Regina under a foot of snow
- City of Regina prepares to deal with aftermath of March winter storm
“We started a systematic plow on Category One, Two, Three and Four streets as of Monday night at 6 pm,” he said. “Overnight, we were able to complete plowing activities on 5o% of Category One streets and 26% on Category Two.”
Warren said another important part of their work is the declaration of a snow route.
- City of Regina working to keep streets clean during winter storm
- All snowfall and winter storm warnings have ended across Saskatchewan
“Some sections of Victoria Street and College Avenue are effectively under a parking ban as of 6 am this morning for 24 hours.”
With all the snow and work put in during the last couple of days, you’d expect city crews to be worn down. But Warren says that’s not the case.
“Although this is the single biggest snowfall we’ve experienced since 2012, 2013, we’ve got the resources and equipment in place to be able to maintain our timelines and policies.”
