Transit service resumes, motorists urged to drive safely

Saturday, April 1, 2023

The City of Sault Ste. Marie is extending its Significant Weather Event in the area with respect to hazardous snowfall accumulations.

Transit Services will resume effective 3:15 p.m. this afternoon. Regularly scheduled On Demand service begins at 7 p.m.  Note that some transit routes may experience delays or potential detours if required and Parabus service may have difficulties entering parking lots that may not be plowed. Please be patient.
Public Works continues to deploy all available crews to keep up with large volume of snow that has fallen. Currently, the team is managing the event with the focus of snow removal on the main and collector roadways. The clearing of residential areas and designated sidewalks is delayed until the main roadways and collector roads are cleared and safe. Sidewalks should not be blocked by vehicles to facilitate snow removal. Residents are reminded that the snow plowed to the end of their driveway during a significant snow event is their responsibility and may be more than usual. 
Residents are asked to avoid parking on city streets, when possible, to assist in the efficiency of maintaining the roads.
Public Works response will continue throughout the weekend but given the high volume of snow over the short period of time it may take longer than normal to ensure public safety and that the roadways, sidewalks, and transit bus stops meet normal maintenance standards. Continue to use caution and avoid unnecessary travel.
Updates will be posted to the City’s website and social media sites as required. Thank you for your cooperation.
