The City of Oshawa and Region of Durham have a system in place to ensure that your roads are plowed and salted in the most timely and effective manner.
The City has a snow clearing schedule that is based on a road priority system. Salting and plowing begins on high use roadways and then moves to residential streets.
View the status of the City's snow clearing operations here.
|The Road Operations division proactively applies a salt brine solution to road surfaces prior to an anticipated storm. The salt brine solution forms a bond breaker between the pavement surface and the snow and ice layer, which melts snow more quickly and reduces the chance that ice will form and bond to the road surface.|

For safety and convenience, clear your sidewalks quickly.
City of Oshawa Snow and Ice Removal By-law requires that every property owner clear the snow and ice from municipal sidewalks abutting their property by midnight of the first day following the end of a snowfall. For safety and convenience, please clear your sidewalks quickly.
If sidewalks are not cleared, the City has the ability to clear them and the costs will be charged to the adjacent property owner.
Residential owners and occupants may obtain small amounts of winter sand for sidewalks from the City staff parking lot located on the south side of Wolfe Street, west of Ritson Road South. This is provided at no charge.
