The City of Oshawa uses a snow removal schedule based on a road priority system to ensure that your roads are plowed and salted in the most timely and effective manner. The City’s main roads are the first priority as these streets carry most of the City’s traffic as well as emergency vehicles and public transportation. Residential roadways are the second priority.
During winter snowstorms, the City’s snow removal crews work around the clock and aim to complete clearing within 24 hours of the end of a snowfall. During these snowstorms, the City issues Snow Clearing Activity Reports to update residents on the progress of snow clearing activities for City maintained roadways, sidewalks and on the snow clearing assistance program. These reports are issued three times a day (morning, afternoon and evening) and appear below. The reports are based on visual observations by City staff and the projected completion times are calculated based on equipment capabilities, temperature, snow intensity and duration.
Please Note: The Region of Durham maintains all regional roads within Oshawa. The Region’s snow clearing activities are not included in the report below.
