With the snow officially here, and it will probably be sticking around, the city does have a certain set of guidelines to follow when it comes to making Airdrie's streets driveable.
According to the city's website, they have five different categories listed as priorities.
Priority one is the Arterial roads. Arterial roads are most of the major roads that include Main Street, 8 Street, East Lake Boulevard, Veterans Boulevard, and Yankee Valley Boulevard. The priority one snow clearing level also includes school zones on school days.
Priority two includes collector roads. Collector roads are the main roads heading into residential areas such as Meadowbrook Drive, Kings Heights Boulevard and Reunion Gateway.
Priority three includes major rural roads like Township Road 264, Range Road 291 and Township Road 274.
Priority four is all city-owned parking lots such as fire halls, arenas, Town and Country Centre and parks.
The fifth and final priority includes all residential roads where plowing will occur when the road is seen as impassible. The snow will be plowed to boulevards or to the side of the road.
According to a previous interview, when it comes to cleaning sidewalks and driveways in front of your house, Airdronians are responsible for cleaning themself and are asked to not throw the snow onto the road but put it in your front yard.
