Burlington is prepped and ready for winter and whatever it brings to its 1,900 lane kms of roads and 850 kms of sidewalks.
“As usual, primary roads like Appleby Line, Upper Middle Rd., Guelph Line, Brant St. and others are done first. When those are complete, we will move onto secondary roads and then residential streets.”
And as much as we love our sports, it’s “really important for people to keep their cars, hockey nets and basketball nets off the street so our plows can safely and efficiently navigate the roads,” Adam said.
During the winter season, residents can use the What’s Been Plowed feature to see which streets have been plowed when it snows.

Yes, you read that right—there is a snow plow tracker you can follow online.
As for how snow clearing works, the city says that primary and secondary roads are plowed if snowfall is more than 5 cms.
Residential roads are plowed when there’s 7.5 cms of snow.
Naturally, major roads are cleared first.
Once priority roads are dealt with, secondary roads and residential streets are handled.
