Clearing the way – sidewalks  

  • Main road sidewalks: are plowed first and as soon as five centimetres (two inches) of snow accumulates on the ground, including sidewalks around York Region Transit stops (stops are cleared by York Region) and along schools and churches, these routes may be salted and plowed more than once before moving onto residential areas
  • Residential sidewalks: sidewalks, crosswalks, school crossings, paths and walkways within parks and private roads are cleared once sidewalks on main roads are complete  
  • For a full list of maintained sidewalks, view the sidewalk plowing map (PDF).
