The City of Guelph is completing two residential plow outs this weekend. The first started at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 18, and a second will start at 8 p.m. tonight. Crews will continue working until all roads and sidewalks are plowed, again.

Please move parked cars off the street.

Roads will be plowed within 24 hours

A plow out is typically completed 24 hours after a storm has stopped. During that time, we start plowing main roads first, followed by secondary roads. Residential streets are plowed last. Please give us until 24 hours after a storm before submitting a service request.

Sidewalks will be plowed within three days

Guelph’s 700 kilometres of sidewalks and multi-use paths take three days to clear. Stretched end-to-end, they’re the same distance between Guelph and Montreal. We appreciate your patience as we work to get them cleared.

How you can help:

  • Allow for extra commute times and drive according to road conditions
  • Never pass a snow plow
  • If you’re able, please help clear sidewalks near your property
  • Keep fire hydrants and storm drains clear of snow
  • Shovel a spot for your waste carts, or place them in the driveway one foot from the curb
  • Move parked cars off the streets to make room for snow plows and emergency vehicles
