Richmond Hill uses 23 snowplow and sanding units for winter maintenance and is responsible for more than 600 km of roads. During an average winter, staff responds to about 55 to 70 winter events each season.
Local roads are cleared of snow within 16 hours after the end of a winter storm. Primary roads are plowed and salted first. These are the streets leading in and out of neighbourhoods. Secondary roads are cleared after the primary roads.
Dead ends and wide bends are cleared within 24 hours after the end of a winter storm. It's important to keep these areas clear, because they can cause problems for other snow removal services.
