Snow clearing status

Ice control activities, including salting and sanding, are undertaken city-wide to improve traction on roadways as conditions warrant on bridge decks and overpasses, as well as P1, P2 and P3 streets as required.

Snow clearing status map

The following map outlines the overall progress of hard-working snow clearing crews during major snow clearing operations (does not include maintenance and spot plowing), displayed by geographic areas - for Priority 1 (P1) and Priority 2 (P2) snow clearing operations, and by snow zones for residential plowing operations related to a snow event – Priority 3 (P3).

Please note: Winnipeg’s street system is cleared based on a priority system. In periods of sustained snow spanning several hours or days, especially combined with periods of high winds, crews may return to do more work in an area previously marked as completed. Completion percentages during a major snow clearing operation (P1 & P2) are based on updates provided twice daily – at approximately 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. During a residential plowing operation (P3), that map will be updated twice daily at approximately 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Reporting missed streets: Please contact 311 to report a missed street only once the area is marked as “Complete,” indicating that crews have completed the major plowing operation.

Note: A major plowing operation is triggered when snow accumulation is 5 cm or more.
