Winnipeg tackles major city-wide snow clearing Friday

The plows are out on Winnipeg streets Friday morning as part of what the city is calling a major city-wide snow clearing operation, after a dumping of the white stuff Thursday night.

Crews will be plowing all streets, sidewalks, active transportation pathways and back lanes, but as always, it’s based on the city’s priority system, which means they’re starting with Priority 1 roads, major routes and their adjacent sidewalks and active transportation paths.

Priority 2 roads, bus routes and collector streets, will follow.
