Snow Plow Routes
The Town of Halton Hills Public Works staff works hard to clean, maintain, and provide safe routes of travel during the winter over our 950 km of roads.
Public Works staff applies salt, sand or a salt solution to Town streets. See Salting & Sanding.
- Snow plow routes are determined and laid out according to traffic patterns and in accordance with accepted Town of Halton Hills Council policies.
- All roads are cleared after every major storm.
- Residents should note that Town staff has the added responsibility of clearing the Region roads in Halton Hills.
- While we do not discourage residents from calling to inquire when their road will be plowed, we are asking for their patience as we work on clearing roads.
Areas of Priority
Priority 1 - Main Arterial Roads
- Main routes are our first priority.
Some examples of main or arterial roads:
Priority 2 - Collector Roads
- Side streets that feed into the arterial roads.
- Even though these roads may be well travelled, they may not be designated Snow Routes.
- It’s best to park off these roads where possible so that the snow plows and snow clearing equipment can clear them more effectively.
Some examples of collector roads are:
Priority 3 - Residential and Rural Roads
- The last to be cleared of snow.
- This will start after main arterial and collector roads are cleared of snow and ice.
- Clearing main routes and side streets take a lot of time, so we ask your patience in getting your neighbourhood street cleared.
Some examples of residential and rural roads are:
