City staff monitors the forecast and begins plowing and sanding at any time, 24 hours a day, when snow has accumulated to five (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.
Beaumont's snow and ice control entail seven major functions. The full PDF map can be viewed HERE.
These functions are completed by Operations and Parks operators throughout the winter maintenance process.
