Updates to snow clearing aim for sooner commuter movement across city

Posted by Adam in Driving, 11/15, 11:10 AM

With actual winter and the inevitability of regular permanent snowfall on the horizon, the City of Brandon announced today improvements to its snow clearing process that it says have the goal of ensuring travel across the city within one day of meaningful snow events. 

The biggest change is said to be the designation of highest priority, or “Priority 1A”, routes that are to first be cleared within the initial 24 hours after significant snowfall.

That is to include sections of the following streets:

  • Braecrest Drive
  • Kirkcaldy Drive
  • Knowlton Drive
  • Stickney Avenue
  • McDonald Avenue
  • Hilton Avenue
  • Parker Boulevard
  • Fred Brown Way
  • Pacific Avenue
  • Rosser Avenue
  • Princess Avenue
  • Victoria Avenue East
  • Lorne Avenue East
  • Van Horne Avenue East
  • McTavish Avenue East
  • E. Fotheringham Drive
  • Whillier Drive
  • Park Avenue
  • Queens Avenue
  • Elderwood Drive
  • Brandon Avenue
  • Willowdale Crescent
  • Aberdeen Avenue
  • Richmond Avenue
  • Maryland Avenue
  • Magnolia Drive
  • Lyndale Drive
  • Sycamore Drive
  • Patricia Avenue
  • 34th Street
  • 26th Street
  • 19th Street North
  • 8th Street North
  • 13th Street
  • 10th Street
  • 9th Street
  • 6th Street
  • 1st Street
  • Dennis Street
  • 13th Street East
  • 17th Street East

Following the clearing of the highest priority routes, efforts would progress to additional priority routes as well as residential areas as necessary. 

Outside of city responsibility are all of 18th Street, the majority of First Street, Victoria Avenue West, Richmond Avenue east of 18th Street, the Trans-Canada Highway, Grand Valley Road and Veterans Way. Said areas are cleared by the Province. 

The city continues to maintain a snow clearing map at https://snowmap.brandon.ca which will reflect clearing on routes including the new Priority 1A areas.
