Here is your reminder of how Rocky View County clears the roads they are responsible for when the snow falls.

All paved roads are sanded and plowed after a snow event in the following priority:

1.  Main service roads and/or roads that have the highest traffic volumes.

2. Roads with lower traffic volumes that connect to a main service road or serve subdivisions and local residential areas.

Rocky View County states that their objective is to clear all major roads or those with the greatest traffic volumes in 36 hours, and all other roads in 60 hours.

It may take longer for them to clear the roads if:

  • The snowfall is continuous or prolonged, requiring crews to start over on higher-priority roads.
  • The snowfall is unusually heavy.
  • Parked or abandoned vehicles are blocking roads.
  • Snow falls at night or during peak traffic times when equipment must travel more slowly for safety.

When the snowpack reaches 10 cm, gravel roads are plowed. Unmaintained roads that are utilized to move big farm machinery or automobiles are plowed upon request and when resources allow.
