Snow removal operations
2.5 cm of snow
10 snow removal crews
400 km of roads (200 km x 2 sides)
When snow accumulation reaches 2.5 cm, the contractor hired by the Town sends out his ten snow removal crews to start clearing close to 400 km of roads or almost 500 streets and main arteries. It takes five hours to completely clear the snow on our territory in one single operation. During major storms, the crews must work non-stop and clear all the roads several times. Be patient during snow removal operations. Do not attempt to pass the snowplows. Use caution.
Priority given to main arteries
The priority in snow removal is given to the Town’s main arteries. Then residential streets are cleared. Therefore, your street may not have been cleared when you leave for work in the morning; snow falls can occur at any time of day, making it impossible for the contractor to keep to a regular work schedule.
The snow removal contractor uses salt for ice control on main arteries. On residential streets, abrasives - a mixture of sand, stone and salt - are used. Spills may occur. We thank you for your understanding.
This winter, the Town is committed to ensuring that its road network is safe for everyone. Some roads located on our territory, like Route de la Cité-des-Jeunes, belong to Transports Québec. They are therefore not maintained by the Town. You can reach the Vaudreuil Service Centre at 450 455-6109.
