Just freshly off clearing all of the snow away from city streets, city of Regina crews will have to get back onto the plow to clear the latest snowfall to hit the Queen City.
Crews just finished clearing all residential streets on March 17th, but are now back onto the streets after Friday`s snowfall.
Norman Kyle from the City says crews are out in full force to tackle the snowfall.
“We do have all of our available equipment out on the roads right now, they are actually working on the high-grade roads, some of the perimeter gravel roads, and the high-speed roads, category one roads,” Kyle says. “With the wind we have, we’re getting quite a bit of drifting on those perimeter roads, so we’re asking motorists to avoid them.”
Kyle says driving conditions are not ideal.
“We anticipate the roads will be fairly slippery and slushy, and overnight with the freezing it could make driving a little more treacherous,” Kyle says. “The blowing snow is probably the biggest thing because of visibility, drivers being able to see, as well as the drifts, it’s tough to judge the height of a snow drift with blowing snow.”
A snow route was also declared, and will be in place until 6 am Sunday morning.
