2019 Snow Clearing Information

Colder temperatures and morning frosts have already made their mark in Mississauga and snow won’t be far behind.  The City will be clearing 5,600 lane kilometres of roads and on-street bike lanes, 1,600 linear kilometres of priority sidewalks, 3,400 bus stops, 95 kilometres of roadside multi-use trails and over 1,000 pedestrian crossings. Residents can get snow clearing updates using the snow plow tracker online and by following @MississaugaSnow on Twitter. Residential roads and priority sidewalks are not cleared to bare pavement, but are made passable and safe.

On-street Parking

Parked vehicles reduce the City staff’s ability to efficiently and safely clear roads. Any parked vehicles on residential roads should be removed during snow clearing. On-street parking restrictions remain in effect from 2 a.m. to 6 a.m., year-round.

Temporary parking permits can be suspended at any time during winter operations and new permits will not be issued. Vehicles parked on City streets will be enforced according to the Traffic By-law and will be issued a penalty notice and be subject to towing at the owner’s expense.

Significant Weather Event

During severe winter events, the City may declare a Significant Weather Event under the Ontario Municipal Act (Regulation 239/02). This allows the City’s works operations more time to deploy winter equipment to address a significant winter storm.
