Conditions remain hazardous on toboggan hills
The recent inclement weather and freeze-thaw cycles have resulted in extremely slippery and icy conditions on Beaumont’s toboggan hills. Before participating in any recreational activities, assess the conditions of the hill, exercise good judgement, and take appropriate safety precautions to ensure you are always in control.
The City of Beaumont does not monitor toboggan hill conditions, and users are advised to proceed at their own risk and carefully read the posted signage.
Find more safety tips on the Parachute Canada website.
Due to worsening conditions, transit services had to be cancelled again tonight after 5 p.m. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
Transit service will also be cancelled tomorrow morning, January 18. We will provide further updates tomorrow about whether the afternoon pickups will also be cancelled.
Please stay safe on the roads and refer to the Alberta 511 service for condition updates.
We anticipate that road conditions may worsen again tomorrow morning. If that is the case, transit service may be suspended again for everyone's safety. Please check back for updates first thing tomorrow.
City staff have replenished the free public gravel bin behind Le Centre Communautaire de Beaumont | Beaumont Community Centre (CCBCC), located at 5204 50 Avenue. Residents are welcome to use the gravel to address icy sidewalks and walkways, but please exercise extreme caution when travelling today if you choose to visit the bin!
Due to rapidly-worsening road conditions, waste collection and transit service have been put on hold this morning. We urge all residents to avoid travelling if possible. Municipal sanding trucks have been deployed and are currently addressing main thoroughfares.
Bus service was suspended this morning after the 7 a.m. pickup time. We will provide additional updates early this afternoon about whether our afternoon schedule will proceed.
Today’s scheduled waste collection has been suspended. If road conditions improve later today, waste collection may resume. If waste collectors are unable to resume today, residents who are scheduled for Monday waste collection will have their pickups tomorrow instead.
We apologize for the inconvenience, but these steps are necessary to protect everyone’s safety.
