City Snow Removal Refresher

Frequently Asked Questions during Heavy snowfalls​

Should significant winter weather hit this weekend, City of Windsor Public Works crews will be ready to deal with it and want you to be as well.

As is the case each year, City staff monitor weather forecasts and begin salting, when required, to help ensure roads remain as safe as possible. Plowing starts once the snowfall accumulation reaches five centimetres, and an average route takes from three to six hours to complete once the snow has stopped falling, depending on the time of day and traffic conditions. Once the main roads are clear, and only if more than 10 centimetres of snow have fallen, trucks will then move into residential areas.

Motorists are asked to be patient when travelling behind a plow and give operators plenty of room. Plows typically operate at up to 40 kilometres per hour. Following too close to a snowplow can lead to poor visibility, and vehicles risk being hit by thrown snow, salt or rocks. 

Residents and property owners are reminded that clearing of sidewalks abutting their property is their responsibility. As well, under the Highway Traffic Actand City of Windsor by-laws, residents are prohibited from shovelling snow back onto the street while clearing sidewalks and driveways, as this creates unsafe road conditions for motorists. All sidewalks in commercial areas are to be cleared within four hours after the snowfall ends and within twelve hours in residential areas.

These are just a few of the important winter reminders from Public Works. To learn more about Windsor’s snow removal operations, visit or call 311.

Just a reminder, the City’s Snow Angels volunteer snow removal program is still looking for volunteers.  ​​

Jackson Park New Washrooms

Just in time for Bright Lights Windsor to again delight visitors, the new washrooms and renovated parking lot at Jackson Park are ready for use. Learn more in this video about the changes that will enhance the BLW experience and the many other activities at the beautiful showcase park.

Festival Plaza Retaining Wall

Soil removed during the rebuilding and expansion of the retaining wall at Windsor's riverfront Festival Plaza will be temporarily moved east to open park space. That will ensure the plaza is ready for next summer's event season before the plaza itself is renovated in the next few years. Learn more here about the retaining wall work that's underway and the concept for the future Festival Plaza.

Museum Windsor - What is this?

This wheel consists of 12 wooden spokes, a steel rim, brass hubcaps and a Goodyear tire, which reads: “Goodyear/ Oversize 30 x 31/2/ Made in Canada”.  It was manufactured by Kelsey Wheel.  Kelsey Wheel began operations in Windsor in November 1913, turning out both auto bodies and wheels.  With a merger, in 1927 it became known as Kelsey-Hayes Canada.  Gift of Konrad Schleier 1990.1.1
