Snow and Ice Control

Process


Beaumont's Public Works staff monitors the forecast and begins plowing and sanding at any time, 24 hours a day, when snow has accumulated to 5 centimetres or when excessive drifting has occurred. Streets are cleared based on a priority system to ensure the highest traffic roadways are addressed first. The first priority is the arterial roads in Beaumont along with the other major roadways.
