Winter Road Maintenance

Winter Roads

The Municipality of Clarington is responsible for road maintenance during winter months to ensure the safety of all of our residents. Our crews are responsible for plowing snow and laying down sand or salt for icy conditions on 892 kilometres of Municipal roads, or around 1,800 lane kilometres. Lane kilometres include all lanes in both directions, as well as turning lanes. View our winter storm guidelines to see a timeline of the snow-clearing process.

In order to help us clear the roads more effectively, please assist us by following Clarington's by-law regarding vehicle operation. The by-law is applicable year round.

  • Do not park on the road between the hours of 3 and 5 a.m., or for a period of longer than three hours.
  • Do not push, plow or blow snow onto the road
  • During late winter and early spring, follow weight restriction guidelines

Report winter maintenance issues such as plowing, salting, or mailbox damage using our online Report a Problem form.
