Strathcona County is committed to providing efficient services and maintaining safe conditions for residents throughout the winter season. We use a priority approach to manage snow and ice on County roads and trails.
Residents have an important role in supporting winter operations. This includes keeping sidewalk clear and moving vehicles during snow clearing in residential areas.

Residents have 48 hours to clear their sidewalk after a snowfall. Find free rock chips to manage ice.

Snow clearing and ice control
Strathcona County follows a priority system to manage snow and ice on winter roads. High-volume and high-speed roads in rural and urban areas are cleared and sanded first.
To ensure safe and efficient snow removal, curb ramps must be removed from the road between November 1 and April 15. Learn more.
The Strathcona County Snowmelt Facility can be accessed during operating hours by permit holders only.
