Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay Snow Clearing Update
February 26, 2015
The following snow clearing update is provided by the Department of Public Works:
The snow blowers are not scheduled out today. We have regular snow clearing operations ongoing.
The scraping and widening of streets are scheduled to start again this evening. The following streets are scheduled next: Markland, Montagnais and Saunders in the Valley portion of Town; Valley View and Thompson in the MOT area. If possible, residents are asked to avoid these areas as you may encounter delays with equipment operating.
Once a street is scraped, the blower follows to remove the scraped materials. Please be aware there may be a delay before the blower catches up. A loader is also used to remove the excess scraped materials.
Fire hydrants are being exposed as streets are being scraped and widened.
It is anticipated that 90% of the snow clearing efforts will be completed towards the end of next week. Crews will continue to work from 8:00am to midnight.
