During times of snow and ice, Penticton's Public Works crew strives to clear the roads, bus stops, select sidewalks and parking lots in a timely manner.
Our crew clear roads on a priority basis, beginning with main arterials, steep hills, school zones and bus routes. This is followed by residential roads and cul-de-sacs, which we aim to clear to a safe and passable condition within 48 hours of the snow event.
Despite the efforts of a highly skilled snow removal crew, conditions can deteriorate and roads can become treacherous. Motorists are always advised to exercise caution.
