Weather event expected

Wednesday, March 30, 2022

The City of Sault Ste. Marie has declared a weather event in the area with respect to freezing rain conditions continuing until further notice. Environment Canada has issued a freezing rain warning with the possibility of significant ice buildup on some surfaces. A mix of snow and ice pellets, freezing rain and wind gusts for Sault Ste. Marie and hazardous travel conditions are expected. 
Public Works crews work diligently during a weather event, but it may take longer than normal to ensure public safety and that the roadways, sidewalks, and transit bus stops meet normal maintenance standards. Public Works monitors the weather and patrols the roadways deploying all available crews to address any snow and ice accumulation. 
During this time, all roads and sidewalks maintained by the City are considered to be in a “state of repair” until further notice.  Drivers and pedestrians should use an appropriate level of caution when travelling during this event. The parking by-law remains in effect with motorists not permitted to park on city streets during the winter months between midnight and 6 a.m. however, during a winter event, motorists are also asked to not park on city streets during the day. This will assist in the efficiency of maintaining the roads. 
Updates will be posted to the City’s website and social media sites as required. Thank you for your cooperation.
