Sidewalk Snow Clearing

Publication Date:

This map shows the sidewalk snow clearing routes for the City of St. John's for winter 2017-18. 

The City of St. John's clears sidewalks on at least one side of the majority of all arterial and collector streets near 36 schools. Areas immediately adjacent to schools are the first priority and once they are clear, staff start clearing outwards from the schools to connect them with residential areas. Sidewalk snow clearing routes can take 4 to 7 days to complete. If a snowfall occurs before all sidewalks are completed, staff have to return to the school zones and start over.
