WINTER OPERATIONS INFORMATION
The City of Mississauga has declared a Significant Weather Event under Regulation 239/02, Minimum Maintenance Standards for Municipal Highways (Municipal Act). Winter maintenance crews have been deployed to maintain road safety. Residents should exercise caution when travelling on roads and sidewalks as snow clearing may take longer to complete. Service levels will take effect once the Significant Weather Declaration has been lifted. 

• Crews will focus on keeping major roads clear for the duration of the storm so that emergency vehicles and transit can operate safely. Once completed, crews will move on to clearing residential roads, priority sidewalks and bus stops.

• Residents are asked to remove parked vehicles from streets for equipment to safely and efficiently clear roads.

• For information about the City's snow clearing activities, follow @MississaugaSnow on Twitter, visit mississauga.ca/snow and download the Mississauga Roads App to track our snow plows and salt trucks online.
